Beloved actor Michael K. Williams has been laid to rest in a private ceremony one week after his death.

The Emmy-nominated star best known for his role as Omar in “The Wire” and Montrose Freeman in “Lovecraft Country” was celebrated at a funeral service on Tuesday in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, at Stephen’s Episcopal Cathedral. Almost 150 of his loved ones attended the service, including actress Queen Latifah and his “The Wire” co-stars Felicia Pearson and Jamie Hector.

The 54-year-old actor and dancer was found deceased in his New York home on September 6th by his concerned nephew, who went to check on him after he missed a scheduled appearance. Officials are confident that his death resulted from an overdose and are now looking for the person who sold him the illicit narcotics.
