Michael J. Fox, Diane Lane and Judith Hill were among the mourners who attended a Hollywood memorial service for Family Ties creator Gary David Goldberg on Saturday (29Jun13).

The private ceremony took place on the same Paramount studios lot where the late Tv boss staged the classic 1980s sitcom and Fox, who launched his career on the show, paid a touching tribute to his former mentor.

He told the invited guests, "Gary was loved by many, including me."

Oscar winning lyricist Alan Bergman paid tribute to Goldberg in song, before Hill closed the service with a rendition of Amazing Grace.

Goldberg lost his battle with brain cancer on 22 June (13), aged 68.
