EXCLUSIVE

0215-mark-balelo-facebook"Storage Wars" star Mark Balelo's body was cremated, days after he committed suicide, but his family is still undecided about where to place his ashes ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Mark died Monday from carbon monoxide poisoning -- he left his car running in his garage 2 days after he was arrested for drugs.

Sources connected to the family tell us they had Mark's body cremated Thursday, and plan to hold a small memorial service next weekend.

We're told the family hasn't figured out what to do with Mark's ashes yet ... but will make a final decision before the service.

Maybe the family can sell the ashes for beer money.

Maybe they can rent out a storage locker to put the urn in, then in about 10 years let the payment lapse and someone can buy the locker and it's contents in an auction.

Whatever you do Don't stick him in a storage locker and forget to pay the rent on it.

If all they found was a body in a car in a garage, what made them think suicide? Isnt that supposed to be a peaceful death? Maybe he was just thinking about life and drifted off?

Barry brings a lot of characters with him to auctions, maybe Mark's remains can be his new sidekick. Picture Barry driving up on one of his scooters with the urn mounted on the front...

TMZ... 'arrested for drugs' - what does that mean??? Did he have a couple of ounces of weed or 10 kilos of cocaine? If he was facing a fine or 6 months, the suicide must have been based on other stuff going on in his life and it was the last straw. If he was nailed cold and facing life, then it makes more sense. Details, please?

How is he a star of the show? He was on a few episodes bidding against the regulars and mostly portrayed as an idiot with more money than brains.
