How Did Anton Fier Die?

Anton Fier passed away on September 14, 2022, in Switzerland from assisted suicide at the age of 66. Four days later, the person known as Mr. Olsen received the boxes, which were filled with piles of Mr. Fier’s clothes.  And on Oct. 1, Nicky Skopelitis who is a Palomino’s guitarist and the executor of Mr. Fier’s estate also received the cremation notice, dated Sept. 14, along with Mr. Fier’s remains. 

Questions about his last days linger. But in a way, friends said, that seems fitting for a man who was only too comfortable with loose ends.  Two years ago, Mr. Stamey has also urged Mr. Fier to write a memoir, to pull him out of his funk. Mr. Fier’s response, Mr. Stamey recalled, was curt: “He said that he wanted to be the only one who didn’t write a book.”
