“Hef passed away on September 27, 2017. On the 2nd anniversary of his death, we remember his love of life, his infectious laugh, and his lifelong fight against injustice,” a statement from Hefner’s Twitter page read on Friday. “We celebrate him as a true visionary, an activist, adventurer, and coolest pajama wearer. We miss you, Hef.”

Go do something.’ So I started traveling and I kind of been all around the world since trying to find myself because I was such a part of Hef’s world for 10 years … I’m trying to kind of find myself and see what I like.”
