Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman was laid to rest near his South Carolina hometown six days after his tragic death.
Boseman tragically passed away at home on August 28, after a four-year battle with colon cancer.
The AP reports that Boseman was buried on September 3 at Welfare Baptist Church Cemetery in Belton, South Carolina, about 11 miles from his hometown of Anderson.
A day later, Anderson held a public memorial for the actor.
The AP, which obtained Boseman's death certificate, also reported that the immediate cause was listed as multiple organ failure, with the underlying cause of colon cancer.
Earlier this month, Black Panther producer Nate Moore shared the moving final message he received from Boseman.
The pair had been working together during Boseman's final days to send a young fan gifts through the Make A Wish Foundation, the charitable organisation that raises funds for critically ill children.
"We worked together to get a young boy a voice note from [Boseman's Black Panther character] T'Challa, as well as a package of toys – no easy feat when we weren't allowed to leave our homes or go to the office," said Moore.
"But Chad figured out how to make it work because he cared so intently, and in hindsight, so personally."
Moore then shared the final message he received from Boseman, which read: "It broke me, man. But we need to do that for them. People deserve abundant life, special moments. They’ve been through hell battling disease.
"If we were able to ease their suffering and bring joy for a moment... then we made a difference in his life."
