Guests at the Celebration of Life received a colorful program embellished with John's contagious smile. The back page included one of his most famous Boomerang lines … "BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!"
As we reported … John died suddenly last week after entering a cardiac arrest at his home in Sherman Oaks, California. Witherspoon's career – which began in stand-up comedy – has lasted more than 5 decades. His most notable role was to play the Ice Cube's father, Craig, in all Friday movies.
The Witherspoon Family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Actors Fund or to the Angela and John Witherspoon Family Foundation for the Arts.
