LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - Kobe and Gianna Bryant were buried in a quiet ceremony in Corona del Mar, California on Friday, February 7, 2020. The pair died after their chartered helicopter crashed into a hillside on January 26 in Calabasas, California. Pilot error amid low visibility due to fog is the apparent cause of the crash.
Kobe Bryant's death certificate issued by Los Angeles County.
Kobe Bryant was 41, and his daughter Gianna, 13.
Kobe Bryant was an all-star player for the Los Angeles Lakers, who was considered one of the best players of all time. He was widely admired both in the United States and around the world. He also engaged in philanthropy, providing scholarships to young people aspiring to play professional basketball.
Also notable was that Kobe Bryant was a lifelong Catholic whose faith had a major influence on his adult life. Bryant credited his Catholic faith for turning his life around and rescuing his marriage.
On the morning of his death, Kobe and his daughter Gianna attended Mass immediately prior to boarding their ill-fated flight.
Kobe and Gianna Bryant died along with seven other people, including the pilot of a chartered helicopter. The group was flying to a basketball event for Gianna and other young players.
Kobe Bryant is survived by his wife, Vanessa, 37, and their three daughters.
A public memorial is scheduled for Kobe Bryant on February 24 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where the Lakers play their home games.
