Funeral plans for fallen actor Lee Thompson Young have been set.

TMZ reports that Young will have his funeral service at the Paramount Pictures lot in Hollywood, Calif. Hundreds of guests are expected to attend and pay their respects to the star.

Young’s family requested that in lieu of flowers or gifts that mourners donate to the Young Storytellers Foundation, a group that exposes underprivileged children to the arts.

The service is set for this afternoon (Aug. 23).

Young, who was most recently on ‘Rizzoli + Isles,’ took his own life, reportedly by a self-inflicted gunshot. His body was found on Aug. 19. There was no suicide note left, but sources say Thompson did suffer from depression.

Our thoughts remain with Young’s family, friends and loved ones during this tragic time.
