Duane "Dog" Chapman was joined by his family and dozens of his fans in a memorial honoring his late wife Beth, who recently passed away after a fierce battle with cancer.


On Saturday, June 29, the bounty hunter arrived at Fort DeRussy Beach, in Waikiki, Hawaii, Beth's favorite place in the world, to pay his respects to the woman he spent over 30 years with.

According to Dog, Beth requested a Hawaiian-styled ceremony, and her family followed through. Not only that, but they also encouraged people to show up and pay tribute to the 51-year-old.



During the ceremony, which was recorded by several fans at Fort DeRussy beach, Dog revealed that his wife loved Hawaii and its people, especially the people.

On Friday, a representative for the Chapman family shared their plans for the memorial:

“Beth had two homes — Hawaii and Colorado. ‘I love Hawai’i the most,’ she said, so she will be sent off in true Hawaiian style, with aloha, a Hawaiian ʻOli, prayer, followed by a paddle out with family and friends.”


As aforementioned, the fans were welcomed to join the family at the memorial but they were asked to bring only ocean-friendly loose flowers and no leis, as the strings could be harmful to the ocean wildlife.


It has been reported that Dog is also planning a memorial service in Colorado but, so far, no details have been shared with the public.



Beth drew her last breath on Wednesday at Hawaii's Queen's Medical Center, after being rushed to the hospital on Sunday. Due to her erratic behavior, doctors were forced to place her in a medically-induced coma.


At the time, Dog asked their fans and followers on social media to pray for his beloved wife, but he was also the one who let the world know that she had passed.

Beth is survived by husband Dog and their children: Bonnie, Garry, Cecily and Dominic. According to the grieving husband, she hiked the stairway yo Heaven and he hopes to see her "on the other side."
