Visiting Eric Berne's Resting Place
Eric Berne is buried at the El Carmelo Cemetery, Lighthouse and Asilomar Avenues, in Pacific Grove California within view of the Pacific Ocean.
Pacific Grove is located on Highway 68, North of Carmel and West of Monterey.
To get to El Carmelo take Highway 68 as it branches off Highway 1, North of Carmel. Go North on Highway 68 for about five miles until you get to 17 Mile Drive. Go North (right turn) 1/4 of a mile to Lighthouse Ave. Turn left on Lighthouse. Watch for the cemetery on your right. When you come to the end of Lighthouse, corner with Asilomar, park your car.
Walk South 50 feet from the corner of Asilomar and Lighthouse (away from Asilomar) until you come to the end of the cemetery and some apartment houses. The last grave on that corner of the cemetery will be marked Ed Reynolds. Turn around and from that grave walk back to Asilomar Avenue counting five rows (approx 23 paces) until you come to the Gibbs' graves. Berne's grave is on that row, 5 graves away from Lighthouse Ave.
David Kupfer's ashes are buried just above Berne's grave and Berne's step-daughter Roxana Elsinor Way is buried next to him.
