Swedish DJ Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling,  laid to rest in a private ceremony in his home city of Stockholm. Nightclub owner Jesse Waits shared a picture of the program from Avicii's service. 

 

The late music-influencer was found dead in his hotel room after committing suicide in Oman on April 20 at the age of 28.

He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.

Following his death, his family released an emotional statement admitting that Avicii "could not go on any longer and wanted peace."

 

"Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who traveled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress," the statement added. "When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved mostmusic.. He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace. Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight."
