Guitar legend Eddie Van Halen's final resting place will be off the coast of Malibu, Calif., according to TMZ.
Following the Van Halen co-founder's death on Oct. 6, his death certificate shows he was cremated and his ashes were sent to his son, musician Wolfgang Van Halen, who played bass in his dad's band for many years.
Sources tell TMZ Wolfgang, 29, will honor Eddie's wish to have his ashes scattered in the Pacific Ocean in Malibu.
The death certificate also lists Eddie's immediate cause of death as a stroke and cites other health issues, including skin cancer on his head and neck, TMZ reports.
Known for his super-fast and agile finger tapping technique, his classical music influences and his athletic performances, Eddie's pioneering guitar work arguably changed the role of the instrument in rock bands for decades to come. But he was also a family man.

"He was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment I've shared with him on and off stage was a gift," Wolfgang wrote of his father on Instagram in October. "My heart is broken and I don't think I'll ever fully recover from this loss," he continued, adding, "I love you so much, Pop."
Eddie died surrounded by those he loved at St. Johns Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif., following a long battle with throat cancer that in the end, had spread to his brain and other organs.
He was 65.
