Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died at age 46 on Sunday, will be laid to rest during a private funeral service to be attended by family and friends, his rep Karen Samfilippo says in a statement obtained by USA TODAY.

"There will be a private funeral service held in N.Y. for the family and close friends of Philip Seymour Hoffman," the statement reads.

A date for the services was not specified.

"Plans are also underway for a memorial service later in the month also to be held in N.Y. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Phil's name to two charities that were very close to his heart: The DreamYard Project and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. The family wishes to thank everyone for their continued support and good wishes."

On Monday, an autopsy was performed on the actor, who is believed to have died of a heroin overdose. The results of the autopsy are expected back Tuesday.
