‘American Gladiators’ Star Lee Reherman’s Memorial Service Promises Bikinis, Beach and Booze

Actor will be remembered with ultra-casual gathering in Manhattan Beach, California

Lee Reherman’s memorial service definitely won’t be a formal affair.

The ceremony for “American Gladiators” star Reherman, who died this week at age 49, will be a beach affair, with a strict dress code of bikinis and other super-casual attire, according to a press release issued Thursday.

“Attire will be strictly enforced in keeping with ‘Hawk Style’! No suits or dark clothes allowed!” the release reads. “You must wear outdoor beach clothing. Cargo or board shorts, bikinis, jeans, t-shirts, jerseys and anything that you would wear to party with Lee at the Beach!”

The ceremony will take place Saturday at 10 a.m., just south of the Manhattan Beach Pier near Los Angeles.

After the ceremony, attendees will adjourn to Shellback Tavern, where they will “LAUGH, cry, LAUGH some more and share our favorite stories about the man we all love so much!”

Guests are encouraged to bring flowers, which will be added to a circle of flowers planted in the sand.

Reherman was found dead at his home on Tuesday. According to a representative for the actor, he had been suffering from a flu-like illness for the past several days.

In addition to his role as Hawk on “American Gladiators,” Reherman appeared on “Gilmore Girls,” “The Shield,” “Jane the Virgin” and “Cooper Barret’s Guide to Life.”

He also appeared in the Arnold Schwarzenegger film “Last Action Hero.”
