The funeral director organizing the ceremony in Utah has confirmed that the service -- originally slated for Saturday -- was no longer taking place.

Blake Yates, from Memorial Estates in Utah, would give no more information about the cancellation -- but Coleman's agent confirmed that it was due to a family feud.

“The family Coleman's parents has different plans than what is in Gary's will,” Shielia Erickson said.
