Gary Coleman Remains Unburied One Year After Death
Nearly a year after his death Gary Coleman apparently still hasn't been buried.
Vic Perillo, Coleman's former manager, revealed in an essay obtained by WENN.com that Coleman's body is yet to have been put to rest. Apparently, the legal battle between his parents and his estranged wife have put burial plans on hold.
Perillo's essay apparently also encouraged various networks to pay tribute to the late actor, though he seems to have gotten little response.
“On this, the first anniversary of his death, I have contacted the three major (U.S. TV) networks, asking them to honor Gary, his eight years on Diff’rent Strokes, his seven movies of the week, his work as a spokesman with the National Kidney foundation and the many charitable endeavours he gave of his time and effort to," Perillo wrote according to WENN.com.
Coleman died in late May 2010, after suffering an intercranial hemorrhage. He had been in ill health for some time as he suffered from kidney disease which stunted his growth.
The "Diff'rent Strokes" actor died at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo. He was 42.
