June 2, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Funeral plans are being finalized for actor Gary Coleman, who died last Friday at the age of 42. An agent for Coleman says the late actor's family is planning a memorial service, but hasn't decided whether it would be private or public.

The family hopes to hold the service Friday, Saturday or Sunday in Salt Lake City, according to the agent.

The former star of "Diff'rent Strokes" died of a brain hemorrhage after being taken off life support at a Provo hospital.

He had suffered from kidney problems for most of his life. According to Santaquin Police Chief Dennis Howard, Coleman had a dialysis treatment that day.

Coleman starred on the hit TV sitcom in the late 1970s and 1980s.
