At that time, his manager said, "On behalf of the Tom Petty family we are devastated to announce the untimely death of our father, husband, brother, leader and friend Tom Petty".

Tom Petty's family and friends bid farewell to the rocker at a service in a California spiritual retreat, where his friend George Harrison's funeral took place 16 years ago.

The I Won't Back Down hitmaker, 66, lost his life at the UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica on October 2, a day after suffering a cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu, and on Monday, a memorial service was held to celebrate his life. Petty posted a photo of a white T-shirt with an illustrated Tom Petty on it along with the Latin phrase "Nil Desperandum", coming from Horace's Odes and roughly translating to "no need to despair".

She also shared a picture of herself and sister Adria Petty at the service, writing: "We care about each other and love our bad a*s father".
