Quoted from Mona Simpson’s Eulogy for Steve Jobs. Mona Simpson is Steve’s biological sister.
Steve’s final words, hours earlier, were monosyllables, repeated three times.
Before embarking, he’d looked at his sister Patty, then for a long time at his children, then at his life’s partner, Laurene, and then over their shoulders past them.
Steve’s final words were:
OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.
With a life like his, it’s no surprise that the final words are “OH WOW”.
