Kung Fu star David Carradine was laid to rest on Saturday evening, with a memorial attended by hundreds at Burbank, CA's Forest Lawn Memorial Park.

In what one source told was a "celebration of life," the Hollywood community joined people from all walks of life in remembering the Kung Fu star.

During a three-hour ceremony kicking off at 5:45 p.m., a large crowd gathered to remember the actor who died weeks ago in a Thai hotel room.

Stars including Michael Madson, Lucy Liu and Darly Hannah attended, where David's brothers Bruce and Keith spoke on his behalf. With more laughter than crying, the family shared things like David's rules for living and other memories.

A Native American tribe performed blessings on the congregation following the memorial, shortly after which Carradine was transported to his grave site. Carradine was 72.
