The two production companies behind the MTV reality show "Buckwild" have offered to pay for all of Shain Gandee's funeral expenses, TMZ has learned.

Parallel Entertainment CEO J.P. Williams -- who produces the show with Zoo Productions -- tells us, "Shain was a great kid with a big heart who had endless love for his mom and dad." He adds, "I am from West Virginia and this show reminded me of how I grew up."

A public service for Shain will be held this Sunday.

As for the donation websites that have been raising money to help pay for the funeral -- we're told that money will now go toward expenses incurred by Shain's family during the recovery effort.

We're told any remaining money will go towards the funeral of the other two men that were killed, including Shain's uncle.

As we reported, 21-year-old Shain was found dead yesterday morning inside his truck, which had stalled out submerged in mud while off-roading. Shain and the two other men died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Shaine Gandy was a drunk and brought nothing to society. Lets not forget that he killed 2 other ppl, not lincluding himself, when he decided to go out and drive his car while drunk. If he would have survived that, but killed the other 2, would ppl still be proclaiming his fame??? HELL NO. If i were to go out with 3 friends, kill us all bc we were drunk do u think i would get the regocnition that Shaine is getting? HELL NO. i would be labled as a murderer, a drunk and a menence to society. and thats just what Shaine is. i dont care if he was someones kid, or brother or grandson...he killed someone elses kid, brother, mother, ect...and It was just a matter of time before he killed some innocent family becuase he wants to go out and drink and drive. lets honor some one that actually brought something to society...Shaine Gandee is the mosquito of the human world...it brings nothing useful to this world

People can be so ****ing ignorant & just down right disrespectful. If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all. This was a good show & Shain was a good person. He's the one who made the show. My favorite & i'm sure a favorite to majority of the people who watched the show. He is well loved by his family & fans. So everyone who want's to run their mouths about someone who had died, needs to shut the **** up & seriously needs some help .. that's just insane. Rest in peace Shain Gandee & we love you - from all of your true fans <3333 Fly high angel xoxo
