About one month before his tragic suicide death, Celebrity Chef Anthony Bourdain predicted his demise in an eerie interview.

Speaking about his hectic life on the road, the Parts Unknown star told PEOPLE that his greatest comfort was spending time with his family.

“I’ll go back, see my daughter, unpack, repack, mimic a normal life, which is extraordinarily pleasurable to me,” Bourdain, 61, stated this past May.

“I really love doing laundry. When I go home, putting my laundry in the machine and then hearing the dryer going around, that’s very comforting to me,” he added.

Bourdain claimed that despite his hectic travel schedule, he was not ready to retire any time soon — and would likely die while working.

“I gave up on that. I’ve tried. I just think I’m just too nervous, neurotic, driven,” he told the magazine. “I would have had a different answer a few years ago. I might have deluded myself into thinking that I’d be happy in a hammock or gardening. But no, I’m quite sure I can’t. I’m going to pretty much die in the saddle.”

As readers know, Bourdain was found dead inside his hotel room in France on Friday morning. Just as he predicted, he died working: he was filming for his hit show at the time of his suicide.

The star was dating actress Asia Argento at the time of his passing. He is survived by his 11-year-old daughter Ariane.
