PREACH IT! Gary Coleman: The Cremated Remains Tour 2010
Right now, the remains of the onetime child star are being stored at Lake Hills Memorial Mortuary in Utah while various factions squabble over executorship. But eventually, the parents of Coleman’s ex, Shannon Price, want to get hold of Coleman’s ashes and take them on a train, maybe even sprinkling some of his remains over the tracks.
"Anybody that knows Gary knows that he's an aficionado for trains,” Price’s father, Dale, tells Radar. “There is a place up north of Salt Lake called the Golden Spike Monument, where back in the 1800s, the trains met from the east to the west. We thought about taking some of his ashes up there and spreading them over the train tracks."
Will we get to watch? Sadly, no.
If the tour goes forward, it will be a private, family affair. That is, as private as the affair can be ...
