Star Wars Super-Fan Daniel Fleetwood To Be Placed To Rest In Lightsaber-Shaped Urn


Daniel Fleetwood, the Star Wars super-fan that died shortly after his final wish of seeing The Force Awakens was fulfilled by Disney and director J.J. Abrams, will have his ashes put inside a custom-made lightsaber urn.

According to TMZ, Daniel's brother in-law -- an engineer -- is hard at work making an urn designed to look like the lightsaber belonging to his favorite character, Darth Vader. This will be yet another wish fulfilled for Daniel as he had wanted his final resting place to be Star Wars-related.

Daniel's wife Ashley informed TMZ that the lightsaber urn should be completed by Nov. 21, which is when his family and friends will hold a ceremony celebrating Daniel's life. If it is not ready in time, they have a second option: a Death Star-shaped urn.

Daniel's battle with cancer (spindle cell sarcoma) was a costly one for the young couple and if you'd like to donate some money to help ease Ashley's financial burden you can do so by clicking here.
