London: ‘Dallas’ star Larry Hagman, who died on Friday of complications from cancer at age 81, will be remembered this week during private, invitation-only services in Dallas and Los Angeles.
Hagman’s personal manager John Castonia said on Monday that the memorial services will celebrate his life, the Daily Mail reported.
On Friday, Hagman’s spokesperson released a statement saying, “Larry was back in his beloved hometown of Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved the most. Larry’s family and closest friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday.”
“He was surrounded by friends and family before he passed peacefully, ‘just as he’d wished for,” the statement read.
Years before ‘Dallas,’ Hagman had gained TV fame on ‘I Dream of Jeannie,’ in which he played an astronaut whose life is disrupted when he finds a comely genie, portrayed by Barbara Eden, and takes her home to live with him.
