The certificate also said Reddick would be cremated.

The actor died “suddenly” of natural causes on March 17, his publicist said at the time.

The Yale drama school graduate was known to fans for his no-nonsense roles on The Wire and Bosch. He also had parts in Fringe, OZ, and the John Wick films.

Reddick was in the process of promoting John Wick: Chapter 4 when he passed away.

On the red carpet at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on March 20, Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne paid tribute to the late actor.

“He was a beautiful person, a really special artist, a man of dignity and grace that shone through. He shone that light on the character he played, Charon. He shined that to all of us on the set,” Reeves said.

“I hope that people will remember him with as much love as I have for him in my heart — a lot,” Fishburne shared.

Reddick was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on June 7, 1962.

He is survived by his wife Stephanie Reddick, and children Yvonne Nicole Reddick and Christopher Reddick.
