Gary Coleman Will -- 'Look Each Other in the Eyes'

6/8/2010 4:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a copy of Gary Coleman's 1999 will, and it has an ominous directive in terms of disposing of Gary's body.

Gary Coleman

According to the will, Gary wants his body cremated and wants his personal representative to "plan a wake for me conducted by those who have had no financial ties to me and can look each other in the eyes and say they really cared personally for Gary Coleman.

Gary bequeaths "my entire estate to the Trustee of the Millennium Edge Trust."  He is not more specific.

Gary's former manager, Dion Mial (who filed the papers) claims Shannon Price, Gary's ex-wife, "has been removing personal property from [Gary's] home which has not been inventoried or accounted for."

Mial is asking the judge to immediately appoint him special administrator of Gary's estate so he can give the mortuary a directive to cremate the body.

37, etc...The deed to the house is in her name and her personal items were taken from her by Dion and his attorney. Doubt thes men wear female clothing, art & craft items, etc...Sounds like a another bunch of leeches. Let's wait and see who really takes responsibility for paying the bills for the hospital, funeral and other expenses. Dion is not that great a friend if they had not spoken for over 20 years and was not given the option of handling Gary's medical directive.

Shannon is not cremating him, she has no right. The executor will handle all rrangements. His wish was to be cremated. Maybe the executor will use the funds to have an independant autopsy since those funds should be available for that.



The saddest part is that it seems his whole life, he really felt like no one cared or he could not name anyone who wanted his friendship just for the sake offriendship. No wonder he was so angry! Those sentiments seemed to extend to Shannon since he completely left her out as well. Though she probably did not know it and would explain his 'accident'. I wonder if he kept her around just so that he would not die alone.



Poor Guy!

Geez, if only we all could have told him how much we loved him. I remember him in jest running for Governor and I smiled thinking, Kid ya still got it :-) Hopefully Todd, as others have suggested will get together with people that he knows loved Gary for Gary.

I doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that his ex is trying to profit off of him, in any manner that she can-if what we are reading is factual. She should be ashamed of herself. People (Fans) who cared about Gary Coleman should boycott anything and everything that she says/does, and tries to profit from. She is a pathetic vulture and hopefully what goes around, comes around for her. She literally makes me sick! May Gary now rest in peace, finally.

The question is how long was Coleman lying at the bottom of the stairs bleeding before Price called 911? How long did this evil, sociopathic bitch watch him suffer before she felt safe in the knowledge he would probably die thus feeling comfortable enough to call 911. I'd like to think that the police are going to give this miscreant enough rope to hang herself then arrest her for Gary's murder. Actually, if she would hang herself, I'd buy her the rope.

Well that's going to be one hell of a small gathering.

Just because the will stipulates that Gary desired to be cremated upon his death does not invalidate those who said that Shannon wants Gary to be cremated to hide evidence of her alleged crime. Basically this just happens to work out quite well for Shannon.

I want his ex-wife dead. Her stupid skull bashed into a bloody pulp. It would do Gary and the world some good.

I wonder if the Millenium Edge Trust even exists? It was around '99 when he made this will, and that was around the new millenium hysteria.

About a week ago TMZ mentioned a 2007 will and said it was in the process of being filed. Is that still the case and will we be able to read it? If it does exist, this 1999 will is void. Am I the only one that read about the 2007 will? No one is mentioning it. What did I miss? Thanks!

Didn't miss a thing. It was PDF and never came through on my computer/ Wonder if anyone else had a probem? Will should be void, anyway - he was married and then divorced and SHOULD have written a new one. They are not common law - takes 7 years - not 2 and being married doeosn't count. She is just trailer trash and hauling what she can out of the house. Wonder where she is taking it? Maybe to a pawn shop? Needs a yard sale. Cremations are cheap!! Need the autopsy for cause of death.
"Stupid bitch pulled the plug and he died" doesn't get it.

not a gold digger... but... she is hawking photos of him, knowing he wanted NO paparrazzi, NO tabloids present at his death. She is stripping out his home, claiming everything is hers, despite being divorced, and she intends to make a BIG production of spreading his ashes on a train track, after having explosive arguments over trains... it's symbolic of what a train wreck their relationship was.
