A memorial was held in Vancouver for Cory Monteith on Friday (19.07.13).

The 'Glee' star died last weekend at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in the Canadian city after he overdosed on heroin and alcohol and family and fans gathered outside the venue on Friday to pay tribute to the 31-year-old actor.

Fan Karleigh Walker, who arranged the memorial, told E! News, ''He inspired us all. He touched everyone. Someway, somehow clearly by how many people are here.''

Cory's cousin, Richard Monteith, played the guitar and sang a tribute to the tragic star.

Lea Michele, Cory's girlfriend and co-star, reportedly made a private pilgrimage to the hotel earlier this week.

Rik Feydik, who claims to be a friend of Cory's, said: ''Lea was in the back seat of one of the vehicles sitting between two bodyguards.

''She was wearing her signature huge black shades.

''Lea never got out of the vehicle but she stayed parked in in front of the memorial for five to seven minutes.''

When Rik approached the cars they raced off. He added: ''They were driving crazy.''

Cory was cremated in a private ceremony attended by most of his family and Lea.

He had been battling addictions most of his life but had voluntarily entered rehab earlier this year and was thought to be clean and sober.
