Tony Scott


The life and legacy of the 'Top Gun' helmer will be celebrated in a bigger gathering after he is laid to rest in a private funeral in Los Angeles.

Plans for Tony Scott's funeral and memorial have been revealed by his family. The "Top Gun" director will be laid to rest in a private funeral this coming weekend in Los Angeles. The 68-year-old helmer will be honored later in a bigger memorial after Labor Day, September 3.

"Tony Scott will be honored at a private, family only ceremony this weekend in Los Angeles," the family says in a statement. "The family will announce plans after Labor Day for a gathering to celebrate the life and work of Mr. Scott. Details will be forthcoming once they are formalized."

Tony jumped to his death from the Vincent Thomas Bridge on Sunday afternoon, August 19. He left a suicide letter at his office and another note containing his contact information inside a black Toyota Prius he parked near the bridge. He is survived by his wife and his twin sons, Frank and Max.

"Top Gun" actor Tom Cruise, who reportedly worked on a sequel with the late director, sent condolence to the family. "Tony was my dear friend, and I will really miss him," he said. "He was a creative visionary whose mark on film is immeasurable."
