The family of the late actor Tony Curtis (born Bernard Schwartz) plans to give a public farewell to the late actor, so that family, friends and fans can say their good-byes.

The 85-year old actor died at his home Wednesday of cardiac arrest.

Longtime friend and pallbearer Gene Kilroy tells The Associated Press that Curtis’ wife, Jill Curtis, plans to eulogize her husband of 16 years Monday in Las Vegas. The 85-year-old Oscar-nominated actor who starred in “The Defiant Ones” and “Some Like It Hot” died Wednesday. (Yahoo)

An hourlong funeral is to be followed by burial and then a reception for 200 invited guests at the Luxor hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip. (AP)

In attendance will be Jamie Lee Curtis, from the actor’s first marriage to “Psycho” actress Janet Leigh.
