Stephen Gately Will Be Buried on Saturday
Stephen Gately is coming back home, for good.
Late Boyzone singer, Stephen Gately, will have a funeral in his native country, Dublin, Ireland. Announcement of the funeral that will be held this Saturday was written on Boyzone’s website yesterday.
The body of 33-year-old Gately, who died during a vacation on the Spanish island of Majorca, has been released by Spanish authorities following an autopsy and will be flown back home on Friday.
As the remaining four members of the boy band wrote, “He is now lying in a chapel of rest in a small village in the hills of Majorca whilst repatriation formalities continue. Ronan, Keith, Mikey & Shane visited Stephen’s parents in Dublin on Tuesday to pay their respects and confirm the family’s final wishes for Stephen. The Boyz plan to return to Majorca on Friday to bring their brother back home to Dublin.”
There will be a private family mass in Dublin on Friday night followed by a funeral service at St. Lawrence O’Toole church on Saturday at noon. There are also plans for a memorial service in London, where Gately lived with his partner Andrew Cowles.
