According to a statement issued by Lee’s own Pow! Entertainment, a ceremony was conducted in accordance with the writer’s wishes that he didn’t want to have a large, public service.
“As we all continue to process our feelings of loss at the passing of a true legend, many are asking if there will be a memorial in Stan’s honor,” Pow!’s statement read. “Stan was always adamant that he did not want a large public funeral, and as such his family has conducted a private closed ceremony in accordance with his final wishes.
“Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with them.”
Though the ceremony was closed to the public, social media has been flooding with tributes from Lee’s legions of fans and associates reflecting on the man and his influence.
