Service To Honor Actor Mickey Rooney Held In Hollywood
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The second of two services to honor actor Mickey Rooney was being held at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Saturday.
Rooney passed away on April 6, at the age of 93 at his home in Studio City.
Members of Rooney’s family reportedly fought over where to bury the acting legend, according to KNX 1070’s Bob Brill.
The parties finally agreed that the longtime star should be buried where he wanted and that was among the famous of Hollywood.
Rooney was perhaps best known for the “Andy Hardy” series of films. He was also one of the top box office draws of the late 1930s and 1940s, according to Brill.
Throughout his career, Rooney collected four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work in radio, film, theater, and television.
Hollywood Forever Cemetery, formerly known as Hollywood Memorial Park Cemetery, is adjacent to Paramount Studios.
