Yesterday (March 21) marked what would have been Chester Bennington’s 43rd birthday, and many took to social media to honor the late Linkin Park frontman.

Linkin Park’s Twitter shared a beautiful mosaic image and a link to their #MakeChesterProud page filled will a bunch of fan tributes.

Bennington’s widow, Talinda, shared the following touching message: “Happy birthday! You made the world brighter from the moment you were born. You gave me the world with your love and children, For that, I can never repay you. I pray you are dancing in heaven. The kids and I are privately celebrating you today by doing your fav family activities.”

Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and Dave Farrell both shared they missed their friend.


Bennington’s mother also shared a couple of tweets, including the last photo of her and Chester together.
