Tony Curtis remembered during Monday morning memorial

By Sean O’Connell Friends, family members and fans will gather in Las Vegas this morning to say goodbye to Hollywood icon Tony Curtis. The actor passed away last Wednesday at the age of 85.

A memorial service for Curtis has been scheduled for Monday morning at Las Vegas’ Palm Mortuary and Cemetery, according to his manager.

“My father leaves behind a legacy of great performances in movies and in his paintings and assemblages,” actress Jamie Lee Curtis said in a statement. “He leaves behind children and their families who loved him and respected him and a wife and in-laws who were devoted to him. He also leaves behind fans all over the world. He will be greatly missed.”

Curtis’ manager, Mike Einfeld, said that it is the family’s request that, in lieu of flowers, fans wishing to show their sympathy make donations to Shiloh Horse Rescue, an organization that, according to Einfeld, rescues “abused, unwanted, neglected, and slaughter bound horses of all types.”
