John Witherspoon’s family and friends gathered in Hollywood Tuesday (Nov. 5) to celebrate his life and to say goodbye one last time.

Photos and video footage obtained by TMZ show the late comedian’s open-casket memorial service that was held in Los Angeles and attended by a number of celebs.

Witherspoon’s longtime friend David Letterman commenced the service, which was followed by touching tributes from a number of John’s other Hollywood friends, like Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, George Wallace, Shawn Wayans (who also filled in for his brother Marlon who couldn’t make it), and more.
