Bobby Fischer was buried at a private ceremony in southern Iceland. At Fischer's request, only a few people attended the funeral, including his companion Miyoko Watai and his spokesman Gardar Sverrisson. The church he requested to be buried at was the Laugardalur Church outside the town of Selfoss in Iceland
His funeral marks a quiet end to a very explosive life. Bobby passed away at 64 years of age, which in poetic fashion is the same number of squares on a chess board.
