“The funeral for child actor Gary Coleman won’t be held this weekend, as a fight begins to wage between the actor’s ex-wife and his estranged parents over the custody of his body……

“The family [his parents] has different plans than what is in Gary’s will,” said Coleman’s agent, Shielia Erickson.

Meanwhile, Coleman’s parents, W.G. “Willie” and Edmonia Sue Coleman have hired Orem attorney Frederick A. Jackman, who plans to file for formal probate in 4th District Court, Jackman said in a statement Thursday night.

“The Colemans don’t want to fight with anyone. They just want to bring their son home. Mr. and Mrs. Coleman are Gary Coleman’s surviving family. They’re hoping that by applying for Formal Probate, they can get through this process the right way,” according to the statement. “The status of the divorce, whether or not anyone has a will, these are all issues that should be brought to the family’s attention immediately. Formal Probate is the way we make sure it all gets handled properly.” -salt lake city tribune
