David Carradine was laid to rest Saturday in Los Angeles following a funeral service attended by his 'Kill Bill' acting colleagues Lucy Liu, Daryl Hannah and Michael Madsen, along with Tom Selleck, Edward James Olmos, Jane Seymour and hundreds of mourners who turned out to Forest Lawn cemetery, according to a source who attended.

More than 400 people, arrived at a cemetery on Saturday afternoon to honor the life of the "Kung Fu" and "Kill Bill" star.

Services and the burial were private. Among those seen entering the memorial service were the actor's brother, Keith Carradine, longtime friend Michael Madsen and "Kill Bill" co-star Lucy Liu.

The hearse carrying Carradine's casket was said to have been escorted to the ceremony by a group of motorcycle riders. According to the source, "The service had both sad and humorous moments. The tone was in keeping with how David lived his life. It was very down-to-earth."

David Carradine's brother told, "There weren't a lot of tears, but there was a lot of laughter." Among the speakers at the service were Carradine's co-star from 'The Long Riders,' Stacy Keach, as well as Michael Madsen, according to the magazine. Two children of the late "Kung Fu" star performed a musical number on the harp and piano.

David Carradine rose to fame in the 1970's TV series "Kung Fu" and has appeared in more than 100 films.

The investigation into Carradine's mysterious death in a Bangkok hotel room continues. He died earlier this month at the age of 72.
