Born Hugh Marston Hefner on April 9, 1926 in Chicago, Illinois to parents Grace Caroline and Glenn Lucius Hefner, died of natural causes on Wednesday, Sept 27th, 2017.

The king of all kings when it comes to naughty magazines and arguably more superior to very well-known Mr. Larry Flynt, was said to have passed peacefully amongst his loved ones in his beautiful home we all know by the name, playboy mansion.

It is such a sad moment in history and I say that heartfelt and with a lump in my throat and tear in my eye. Huge has been a huge part of all of our lives from birth it feels. I mean, 91 years of age is almost a millennium, most of us will never live to see a fraction of what his eyes have graced upon. Think about that for a minute and ask yourself, have I know a life without Hugh? The answer is 99% NO!

As some know, Hefner’s health has been on a serious downhill slope the past year or so. Hence the reason you have not seen him in the limelight for quite some time.

Playboy Magazine founded in 1953 with Marilyn Monroe gracing the first cover is what full-throated Huge into the cultural phenomenon we all know him as today. It was actually the stepping stone used to build the playboy mansion, which in return blessed us with the legendary parties Hefner through so often.

Hefner left behind four amazing children,  Cooper HefnerChristie HefnerMarston HefnerDavid Hefner with Cooper taking the role in 2016 as chief editor of playboy. So it’s safe to say the magazine and legacy will live on. Hugh is also survived by his wife Crystal Hefner an American model, DJ, and television personality.

In the end we all have to go, but it’s how we live our dash and what we leave behind what truly counts. Hugh Hefner will be remembered as an amazing father, wonderful husband, influential entrepreneur who was willing to take enormous risk for success and just that really cool intellectual god like figure who taught us all how rock silk pajamas.

About Angelo & Ami Zammit 6 Articles
Angelo Zammit was born August 31st 1981 at Saint Margaret’s Hospital, Dorchester, Massachusetts to Margaret Donahue and Ralph Zammit; he is the youngest of five siblings. At an early age Angelo developed a knack for writing and found his talent truly lied in music. Angelo would find great success in years to come landing music appearances on hit television shows such as the Entourage, True Blood and most recently the blockbuster film starring Robert De Nero, Wizard of Lies. While success from music opened doors to the modeling industry, Angelo landed a major contract with the famous clothing line Armani and guest appearing alongside the most famous in magazines like Men’s Health, G.Q, Teen Magazine and many more. At only age 16 Angelo found himself with a bright future and impossible to see failure. But there was something Angelo missed about just being ordinary;thoughts crossed his mind that, “is it possible to live a normal life with too much success”, and the short answer was no. He found his own childhood friends and childhood sweetheart now viewing him differently, as if they never grew up with him and he was just some product from television and magazines everyone wanted to get their hands on. Things changed and not for the better, attention and praise was not the reason he sought success. So he packed his bags left Hollywood and back to Boston he went. It wouldn’t be until many years later that Angelo would find his calling, he had a long journey of finding self and his place in the world, “what is my purpose” he would often ask himself. Then it hit him, one day sitting there sparked an idea that would forever change his life. He and his fiancé Amee had just come from C.V.S where they had entered their mobile number into a kiosk in exchange for a reward. The idea was to bring this amazing way of engaging customers and rewarding their loyalty to the small businesses all while being able to text customers with deals, offers, incentives, promotions, events etc. in real time drawing them back in on days they normally wouldn’t have come in to spend money. After all it’s simply marketing and Angelo has been marketing himself his whole life. Thus East Coast Loyalty was Co-Founded January 2015 and is what many now know to be a national multi award winning marketing company. *********** Ami Pancholi was born in Bombay India, currently living in Boston Mass. I came to the states when I was a young lady, age nine. Growing up was very tough for me here. Life was so different when I was in India; It was so easy, so many smiles and laughs amongst my family & friends. We were well established, but that would change once the final move to America was set in stone. My parents did well for a while, but like everything, what goes up must come down and the burden would fall on me. I had to take care of both my younger brother & sister. I had to learn the English language so I could in return teach my siblings & parents. I worked at a very young age to help provide for the family. Age meant nothing in my home, it just meant excuses and my parents accepted none. But that would shape me for who I have become today, the woman writing this short bio. Today, I am a successful business owner of a marketing agency called East Coast Loyalty that I have built into a multi award winning company. I am engaged to my business partner & best friend Angelo Zammit. Today I am what I’ve worked so hard to become, today I am happy, successful and most important, I am free!
