Lee Thompson Young

Funeral Service

On Famous Movie Lot

8/22/2013 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lee Thompson Young will be laid to rest this week ... and TMZ has learned the actor's funeral service will take place at the legendary Paramount Pictures lot in Hollywood.

We've learned ... the service has been set for Friday afternoon ... on the lot where his show "Rizzoli & Isles" is filmed. We're told hundreds of people are expected to attend.

0822-paramount-picturesIn lieu of flowers, Young's family is asking friends and fans to make a donation to the Young Storytellers Foundation, an organization which helps expose underprivileged kids to the arts.

As we previously reported, Young was found dead this week inside his LA home with a self inflicted gun shot wound. Police still have no clue why he took his own life.

Young was 29.

Why would this brother leave a note? He thought nobody would care if he was dead anyway, they didn't care about him when he was alive.... leave a note, and they talk about you EVEN worse. It's sad.

It was difficult to watch the other day's R&I episode knowing he had died. He previously had a show of his own on Disney. He had steady work on R&!. It's not "Charlie Sheen" money, but it should have paid the bills. There are thousands of struggling actors with out any regular gig. It doesn't make sense. My guess it's either a failed romance, or some financial drain (gambling, drugs, bad investments, embezzling manager, greedy stage parents. etc) that we are not aware of. He was certainly likeable and charismatic in his role of Det. Frost.

How very sad. I loved watching him on Rizzoli and Iles. He appeared like he had such a kind way about him. I hope whatever caused him to do this will somehow now find him peace. Condolences to his family and friends.
