It was a somber goodbye to an 80s heartthrob in Toronto, Canada.

A funeral for Corey Haim, the former teen idol and star of The Lost Boys, was held in Corey’s hometown Tuesday morning. 

The Steeles Memorial Chapel was packed with more than 200 friends and family for the 45 minute service.

Corey’s best friend Corey Feldman was not at the funeral. As reported he is angering some of Haim’s friends by planning a memorial in LA at a later day. They claim he is using Haim’s death to promote himself.

"The family has decided to make Corey's funeral on Tuesday a small private affair," Feldman said in a statement. "Understanding the recent media attention and to be respectful of the family's wishes I have decided not to attend. Instead I will remain in Los Angeles quietly mourning and planning his memorial."
