Stars including Corey Feldman, Christopher Lloyd and Ernie Hudson turned out to pay tribute to Jeff Conaway at the actor's memorial service in California on Tuesday (21Jun11).
The Grease star passed away last month (May11), two weeks after he was found unconscious at his home and admitted to hospital suffering from pneumonia and blood poisoning caused by a bacterial infection.
He was remembered at a service in Encino, California on Tuesday afternoon and a number of famous faces turned out to pay their respects, including Back to the Future star Lloyd and Ghostbusters' Hudson.
Former child star Feldman spoke at the service and gave an emotional eulogy for his friend of 25 years, telling mourners, "Jeff was an amazing leader... He had a light inside of him that was so inspiring to many. I was one of those people that he affected so profoundly.
"He had energy, he had charisma, he had joy and laughter in his heart. And what he wanted more than anything was to share that with as many people as he could."
The service, hosted by the star's former fiancee, Vikki Lizzi, also included a special performance by Conaway's favourite band, soul group The Temptations, who sang hits including It's So Hard to Say Goodbye and a track written especially for the late actor called I'll Miss You, Buddy.
Guests also signed purple balloons and released them into the sky as a poignant tribute to Conaway.
