Memorial Set for Ryan Jenkins

9/26/2009 8:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nearly five weeks after he hanged himself in the Thunderbird Motel in British Columbia, friends and family will remember murder suspect Ryan Jenkins in a private memorial.

TMZ has obtained the invitation sent out by Ryan's father, Dan Jenkins, inviting friends and family to the service to be held October 1 in Calgary.

As we've reported, a large public memorial is scheduled for Jenkins' wife -- murdered swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore -- on Oct. 4 in Las Vegas.

Buena Park Police tell us they're hoping to receive Jenkins' hard drive -- found with him at the Thunderbird -- from Canadian authorities within the next two weeks.

I'm not judging, just wondering...Is it common in some areas to send out invitations to a memorial service? I have never heard of doing it that way before. Is the invitation like a marker so that only those people who are supposed to be there get in? If that's the case, why would someone who's invited give a copy to the media? The press are going to be all over that. And on another note, why wouldn't Harvey black the day and location out so he could at least get an exclusive?

The two of you saying that TMZ is wrong because he "hung" himself, are 100% incorrect. 'Hanged' is the proper term when referring to someone who died by neck suspension.

Go Katherine! Go Katherine! Go Katherine! Go Katherine! haha    

Why the hell is jasmine fiore family doing a large public memorial for her like she's michael jackson etc.etc.Last time i checked she wasn't some big celebrity.Nobody knew who this girl was till she got killed.All she did was pose naked for money and do late night sexual commercials for guys.Jasmine was too caught up messing around with two guys and ended up getting killed by one of them.Like the saying goes....what goes around comes around!

Here is a new article about RECENT proceedings that Fiore was filing for annulment. That is a new twist.

See, LL said that the marriage was annulled in June. Can anyone get thier stories straight? No wonder annullement papers were never found filed.

Not sure if this is the missing persons report that RJ had filed because the date is 8/18 but the police said that there was confusion because they were looking for a blonde. It clearly states brown hair but that she used to be blonde. Sounds like something RJ would have said.

If JF was in the process of an annullement, why was she traveling with RJ to a tournament. Who was the invite for the tournament for?

What I wish would have happend to that ugly, buck-toothed Ryan Jenkins, was for him to have blown his brains out on film. That way this momentous occasion would have been captured for all posterity. If his family ever wanted a "feel-good" moment, they could have simply popped in the tape and watched the suicide of this devil incarnate.

R.I.P. Jasmine. May you're family take solace in the fact that there's a special place in hell for people like Ryan. He will get his commuppance.

I think Ryan was a very attractive man and was very photogenic.

no proof he killed her yet.....

Ok, we'll get back to Ryan in a minute. You know Michael Jackson had a hell of a funeral earlier this year.......

Suicide was appropriate and even reasonable at this point in the life. Good choice for him. Having a memorial service with printed invites/programs is more than a bit over the edge. I hope her family has a way of reaching through the son to the father to get his money, too. The biggest crime in all this, though, is how freakishly ugly she is -- I mean, it's like porn involving excrement, you cannot force yourself to look.
