Anthony Bourdain died by suicide on June 8 — just weeks before his 62nd birthday. Soon after, Anthony Bourdain Twitter tributes from celebrities and foodies alike flooded our feeds.

Bourdain’s toxicology report showed no proof of narcotics in his system, according to officials. The only thing investigators found was a “trace of a nonnarcotic medicine in a therapeutic dose.”

The man introduced us to new and exciting cultures in a way that was attainable, and he had a grasp on words that made our curiosity flourish. As one Metro staffer wrote when news broke of his death, “In everything he did, Anthony Bourdain worked to make the world a little less strange. Along the way, he taught us all how to be better humans.”

To remember Bourdain on his birthday, people from all walks of life shared messages of love in his honor.
