Los Angeles, Aug 14: Comedy legend Robin Williams will reportedly be laid to rest in the Bay Area of San Francisco in a private family funeral. Susan Schneider, the third wife of the actor – who committed suicide on Monday – is reportedly planning a “very private” funeral in the Bay Area, and family members, including his 31-year-old son Zak, have begun flying into town ahead of the service, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
According to a source, the memorial will be attended only by close friends and family, including his younger children Zelda, 25, and Cody, 22. ”It’s not official yet, but that’s the plan. It will be small. They were both very private people,” said a source.
In addition to the private service, the source says a comedy benefit night will be held for the public in honour of the “Hook” actor. The tribute will take place at the Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley here in the next few weeks. But nothing has been finalised yet.
The venue cancelled a planned show on Tuesday out of respect for the popular local star.
