Donald Sutherland will reportedly be remembered by friends and family at a funeral in Miami, Florida.

The Hollywood veteran died on June 20 at the age of 88 and it’s now been revealed a cremation took place at the Van Orsdel Crematory in Miami shortly after his death ahead of a planned funeral in the city, according to a death certificate reviewed by

No more details have been made available, but previous reports had suggested the actor’s funeral may take place in his native Canada.

Donald’s death was announced last month by his actor son Kiefer Sutherland, who remembered his dad in a poignant message posted on X, previously known as Twitter.

He wrote: “With a heavy heart, I tell you that my father, Donald Sutherland, has passed away. I personally think one of the most important actors in the history of film.

“Never daunted by a role, good, bad or ugly. He loved what he did and did what he loved, and one can never ask for more than that. A life well lived.”

The ’24’ star – whose mum is Donald’s ex-wife Shirley Douglas – also revealed how much his dad had helped him succeed in showbusiness.

He told The Times newspaper: “Me and my dad really got to know each other after I left home at 15.

“My parents split when I was three and my mum, sister and I moved to Canada, so I didn’t live with my dad. I would see him at Christmas and for a couple of weeks in the summer.

“I certainly did see him, but it was really relegated to around holidays. I have to believe that having the same surname as my dad has helped me at times.

“There must have been moments where people who were friendly with my dad leant towards helping me. But I know of two specific instances where someone was not friendly with my dad and I sat in the office for four hours and never got the meeting.”
