The mourning of Michael Clarke Duncan will continue early next week as invited parties gather for a private memorial service.
A family spokesperson tells CNN that an invitation-only funeral will be held on Monday, September 10, and will be led by Bishop Charles Blake, with a eulogy from Dr. H. Beecher Hicks.
Fans of Clarke Duncan's will be able to pay their respects at a separate event. There will be a public viewing of Clarke Duncan's casket at the Hall of Liberty at the Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks and Mortuaries in Hollywood Hills on Sunday, September 9 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Clarke Duncan passed away at 54 on September 3 at the Cedar-Sinai Medical Center. He'd had a heart attack on July 13 and, according to the family spokesperson, never fully recovered.
The tributes have consistently touched on what a loving, gentle and captivating person Clarke Duncan was. The "Green Mile" actor had planned on marrying reality star Omarosa Manigault next year.
