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.
