DALLAS (AP) — "Dallas" actor Larry Hagman will be remembered this week during private, invitation-only services in Dallas and Los Angeles.
The television actor known for starring as slick oilman J.R. Ewing on "Dallas" and Maj. Tony Nelson on "I Dream of Jeannie" died Friday of complications from cancer. He was 81.
Hagman's personal manager John Castonia said Monday that the memorial services will celebrate the Fort Worth native's life. He declined to provide details.
Hagman had been filming the new edition of "Dallas" for the TNT network.
Hagman was diagnosed in 1992 with cirrhosis of the liver and acknowledged he drank heavily for years. In 1995, a malignant tumor was discovered on his liver and he underwent a transplant.
Hagman became an advocate for organ donation and anti-smoking efforts.
