Among the 100 mourners in attendance at the Bel Air service were Kasem’s children, but wife Jean was notably absent
Casey Kasem’s family and close friends remembered the radio legend at a private memorial service in Bel Air, Calif.
Between 100 and 150 mourners attended the memorial on Saturday at Bel Air Protestant Church, including Kasem’s adult children, family spokesman Danny Deraney told TheWrap.
“The children — Kerri, Mike, Julie and Julie’s daughters gave speeches in addition to his close friends and brother,” Deraney said.
Many of Kasem’s former radio colleagues also attended but his widow Jean and her daughter were not present, according to Deraney.
“The day ended with a wonderful video presentation created by Mike Kasem,” Deraney said.

The ceremony was held six days after Kasem died in Gig Harbor, Washington at age 82.
The radio icon and voice of Shaggy on “Scooby Doo” had suffered from Lewy body disease, a progressive form of dementia, which left him unable to speak, eat or move on his own.
He was transferred to hospice care in Washington state shortly before his death following a weeks-long bitter battle between Jean and his adult children over the ailing star’s medical care.
