Anthony Bourdain died today of apparent suicide in his hotel room in France. He was 61.

In an interview with ABC News’ Rebecca Jarvis last year, Bourdain said that, when he was younger, he had a kind of “live hard, die young” attitude.

“It came as sort of a rude surprise to me when I turned 30 and I was still alive,” he said. “I didn’t really have a plan after that.”

He lived another 30 years or so to make a name for himself as chef, traveler, bestselling author and TV personality.

I wish he could have hung on a little longer. He had much more to give. Instead, he hanged himself to end it all. Sadly, he must have felt that life like food had passed its “use by” or “best by” date and that it no longer appealed to his taste.

He would be surely missed by his family and those he had met in this journey called life.
