Tom Petty is going to be honored by the Florida Historical Marker Council. 

Plans are being made for a ceremony on October 20, Petty’s birthday.

A two-sided plaque will be posted in the Gainesville neighborhood where he grew up.

Petty died in October 2017, a week after the completion of a Heartbreakers’ 40th anniversary tour. His death was ruled an accidental overdose as a result of mixing prescription drugs, including pain killers. He was 66.
