Hugh Hefner Laid to Rest in a Super Private Ceremony [Photo]

Hugh Hefner passed away on Wednesday at the age of 91 and the Playboy founder has been laid to rest.

Just a few close friends and family members were present for his services.

via TMZ:

Our Playboy sources tell us … Hef’s 4 children, his wife Crystal Harris and some key Playboy staffers attended the funeral at L.A.’s Westwood Village Memorial Park Saturday at noon. 

As we reported … Hefner’s crypt is directly to the left of Marilyn Monroe’s — he bought the burial spot for $75k in 1992. He’ll have plenty of good company  … the cemetery is filled with celebs, many with Playboy ties.

One of the people buried in the cemetery — around 100 feet from Hef’s crypt — is Dorothy Stratten, a Playboy Playmate who was murdered in 1980 by her estranged husband when she was just 20 years old. Her boyfriend at the time of her death, famed director Peter Bogdanovich, railed against Hefner, blaming him and the “Playboy sex factory” for her demise.

There hasn’t been any word of a public memorial just yet, but we imagine there will be something at the mansion in his honor.
