Kobe Bean Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna have been laid to rest in a private family service two weeks after their deaths in a helicopter crash.
The funeral service was held quietly on Friday at Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona del Mar, California with no photographers present.
Information about the ceremony was revealed in death certificates issued by the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health, which listed burial as the type of deposition for both Bryant and Gianna.
The certificates listed the causes of death as blunt trauma and indicated that they died in a ‘rapid’ manner in the January 26 crash in the hills of Calabasas.
The Blast was the first to report the death certificates.
Seven others on board the helicopter died in the crash, and on Monday a public memorial service was held for three of them: baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife, Keri, and daughter Alyssa.
Several thousand people poured into the stadium in Anaheim, California, Monday for a public memorial honoring the award-winning coach of Orange Coast College baseball, who was known for leading his team to four state titles and helping his young players grow and develop on and off the field.
Scores of them were in the stadium, along with members of current local college teams, wearing their jerseys.
‘We have no clue how many teachers, police officers, firefighters, dads and husbands that he helped develop along the way,’ his longtime friend Josh Belovsky told the crowd. ‘Those are the wins that he cherished the most.’
The 56-year-old coach known as ‘Alto’ won more than 700 games during his 27 years coaching the team and was named coach of the year last year by the American Baseball Coaches Association.
