Mourners gathered in Los Angeles on Sunday to pay their respects to late actor Michael Clarke Duncan at a public memorial. The four-hour, closed-casket celebration of his life was held at the Hall of Liberty in Hollywood Hills' Forest Lawn Park cemetery.
The service featured a slide show, touching speeches from friends and a screening of the 1999 film "The Green Mile," which earned Duncan an Oscar nomination. The 54-year-old died on September 3 from complications of a heart attack he suffered at his L.A. home in July.
A private memorial for Duncan is expected to draw a crowd of Hollywood A-listers to Forest Lawn on Monday.
This man should have won the oscar and academy award for Best Actor In "Green Mile". A MAN TRULY LARGER THAN LIFE THAT MADE A DIFFERENCE......MISSED, LOVED AND RESPECTED MUCH!!!!
Michael Clarke Duncan was a kind and gentle giant among men. His personality on and off camera was that of a caring concerned person.
He and his personality is and will be sorely missed.
RIP and may God Bless you.
