Condolence & Memory Journal

what a star, Dirty Mary Crazy Larry has got to be one of the greatest car chase movies ever filmed. I have watched it over 200 times and it never gets old. All of us from back then went too school with somebody like Peter. Always enjoy his carefree attitude. Like they say, just a good gut in a bad situation. Rest in peace you rebel. Bill Jordan

Posted by Dara Hinshaw - New York, NY - acquaintance   September 02, 2019

I loved you forever! There was a gentleness about you that came thru so clearly. Peter you stood out above so many others. You had the talent, but never appeared cocky or boastful. You lived a simple life, from what I could see, and never relished the spotlight. The last film my husband and I saw you in was your brief stint in Wild Hogs. As always, you claimed the screen as your own, in a very special way.

We send condolences to your children, sister, and those friends whom you held so dear.

To the Fonda family. Mr Peter became a cyber friend to me via Twitter when he responded to posted pics of his Wild Angels bike and a copy of the Captain America bike at the Etelgorg Museum. He started to follow me there in 2018.

We spoke of many things. His movies, politics, music and our fathers, as well as biking. Id always enjoyed his work in films like Futureworld, Ghost Rider, Wild Hogs, Ulees Gold, and Race the Devil. I always looked forward to his replies, and naturally read his memoir.

I cried a lake when the news came out, and can only guess at the sense of loss you folks feel now.

When my father passed, I paraphrased a line from the second Star Trek movie, which bears repeating now: Hes not really gone, as long as we remember. Peter Fonda will be remembered by many, including this Hoosier girl.

I, like so many others saw him first in "Easy Rider" - he was so easy on the eyes. This man followed in his family's tradition of good looks and much talent. My heart broke when I heard of his passing because he was a big part of my love for movies since I was a kid. I don't think he made a movie that I didn't see. Years ago I read his book, "Don't tell Dad." It was very interesting, funny and sad. I never knew he had such a love of the sea.
Was looking forward to a possible second book, maybe.
To Jane, Bridgett, Justin and Parky you have my sincerest condolences. I am so sorry for your loss. The Fonda family truly is Hollywood royalty. There will never be another smile like that one.... I raised a glass and toasted to freedom. I do know that as long as you remember someone with love, they are never forgotten. I still have the poster of him on the bike from Easy Rider...it hung on my bedroom wall for almost 20 years.
Ride on Peter Fonda...A forever fan, Kathy

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.
I felt as if I lost an older brother, his persona always in perfection of his own true self,genuinely portrayed in film but rarity of a star is when you can be yourself and not get soiled by the lights of Broadway. He is few months older than I and always his family became my favorite over the years simply put, they stayed real! To me I have to say a young PRINCE has fallen,king David in bible said when his friend was killed in battle, I have loved you more than the love of any woman. True love undefiled
Synonymous with THE LOVE OF GOD AND TRULY EXHIBITED BY THIS FAMILIES UNIQUENESS OF CONVEYING IT TO THE AUDIENCE, MY HEART GOES OUT TO PETERS FAMILY TODAY, THAT THEY WILL TRULY SEE THAT GOD IS THEIR AUDIENCE AND THAT KNOWING WHERE PETER IS IN HIS LOVING CARE
WILL BE THEIR JOY. DONT LET ANYONE STEAL YOUR JOY. I ALWAYS LOVED, FOR DECADES THIS FAMILY. ON THAT BRIGHT AND GLORIOUS MORNING WE WILL MEET AGAIN. WHERE JESUS IS, TIS HEAVEN THERE, ON LAND OR SEA, NO MATTER WHERE, IN COTTAGE OR IN MANSION FAIR JESUS IS THERE.

Jane and Bridget, the loss of Peter has rocked the Hollywood scene. He now resides in Heaven with your father Henry and his friend Dennis Hopper and of course our Heavenly Father. RIP Peter. Put on a good show with your father Henry for Jesus. You are reunited after 37 years and can tell your father of all the good things that he has missed about your family since he left us.

Rest in Peace, Peter Fonda! You were one great actor from a Royal Hollywood Family. I remember you making movies, your father in Midway and other great movies, and I remember your sister visiting the troops in a Viet Nam POW Prison Camp. She really changed the morale of them all. God Bless You Forever. P.S. Say Hello to you father from all us veterans.

Our company hired Peter to be at our Los Angeles Motorcycle Show at the Convention Center in the 80's, to meet people and sign autographs. He was a true gentleman, so down to earth, and a pleasure to work with. He donated an Easy Rider t-shirt for our auction to raise funds for March of Dimes at the show. Condolences to his family.
