Private Funeral Planned For Philip Seymour Hoffman; Only Friends And Family To Attend
Philip Seymour Hoffman’s family will hold a private funeral for the actor at Manhattan Catholic Church, St. Ignatius on Friday, Feb. 7.
Hoffman’s longtime partner, Mimi O’Donnell, is also reportedly planning a wake for family and friends at Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home on Thursday, Feb. 6. The funeral will also be for friends and family only, though the family has announced plans to hold a separate memorial service sometime later this month in New York City. Furthermore, the family asks that fans and supporters donate to charity in Hoffman’s honor instead of sending gifts.
“In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Phil’s name to two charities that were very close to his heart: The DreamYard Project and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. The family wishes to thank everyone for their continued support and good wishes,” reads a statement from the family.
Hoffman is survived by his partner, O’Donnell, and their three children, Cooper, 10, Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5.
