Funeral arrangements for Gary Coleman being planned

June 1, 2010 |  8:22 pm


Gary Coleman's family is planning to hold a memorial service for the "Diff’rent Strokes" star this weekend in Salt Lake City, his agent, Sheila Erickson, said Tuesday.

It hasn't been decided whether the service will be private or open to the public.

Coleman's attorney Randy Kester told Us Weekly that the former child star's estranged parents, whom the actor sued in 1989 for allegedly stealing some of his money, are planning to attend the service, details of which are not yet finalized.

The actor died Friday at a Utah hospital after he was taken off life support following a brain hemorrhage. He was 42.
