Many want to go out in a blaze of glory. One man’s community made sure he did.

Incorporating the ashes of Anthony “Barney” Brack into a bundle of fireworks, Brack’s family and friends sent his ashes airborne into the night sky on, where they exploded in a flurry of light and sound, during the Halloween celebration in Drumcondra, a Dublin suburb. 

Brack was the founder of Drumcondra's Halloween fireworks display, so his family figured that this would be a fitting tribute to a man that loved fireworks so much. Anthony Brack, a father of two, died suddenly on November 2, 2015.

“There was a real devil in him,” family friend Marty Whelan told the Irish Times. “He was an amazing man, he really was.”

One thing’s for sure, his family and friends know how to honor their loved one.

This is what fireworks look like from space.

Well, at least from high up in the air.
