The Some Like It Hot star passed away on Wednesday after suffering a cardiac arrest. He is survived by his sixth wife Jill Vandenberg Curtis, who he wed in 1998, and his five children, including actress Jamie Lee Curtis.

Jamie Lee delivered a touching tribute to her father following the tragedy, insisting his legacy will live on through his "great performances".  And the family will gather to pay tribute to the star in a small ceremony next week, reports CNN.

The service will take place at 11am at the Palm Mortuary and Cemetery, Green Valley, funeral spokesperson Cecelia Jackson has confirmed.

In lieu of flowers, the Curtis family has requested that charitable donations be made to Shiloh Horse Rescue, which helps "abused, unwanted, neglected, and slaughter bound horses of all types," according to the actor's manager, Mike Einfeld.
