Four years ago, on July 20, 2017, Chester Bennington made the tragic decision to end his life at just 41 years of age. It would have been the 53rd birthday of his late friend and Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, and some have tried to link the two events, although that claim has never been confirmed.
The Linkin Park frontman would leave behind six children, with three of them from his marriage to Talinda Bennington. His widow has now used the sad anniversary of his death to share a touching and heartbreaking message on social media directed to her deceased husband.
You always had a way to make us all laugh. You always made everything better. And when you put this lettuce cup on your head to make us laugh because our food was taking forever, you made everything better once again. I’m so glad that the kids and I have vast amounts of pictures and videos to remember you by. We miss you every second of every day. You were the best person I have ever known. I see you in our babies every day.
Lily is your mini me, with her looks and beautiful voice. Tyler has your wit, intellect, looks, and the same obsession for trying to figure out space and time. And Lila, she has your heart of gold. When they were newborns, you wrote your hopes and dreams for them.
God must have seen what you wrote because they are truly everything you wished for them to be. I know you can see them. I would give anything to have you back so they could see you. But that’s why we have our entire life together on home videos. I’m glad I never stopped recording. Today we will watch some of them and remember how fucking amazing you were. I love you. R.I.P.Talinda Bennington
Talinda Bennington would find love again and married Los Angeles County firefighter Michael Friedman in January 2020, with the ceremony taking place in Hawaii. However, she would announce that they were divorcing just one year later. She would, though, say that they planned to remain friends.
