Mickey Rooney will be buried in Hollywood Forever Cemetery alongside other Hollywood legends like Charlie Chaplin, Jayne Mansfield, Rudolph Valentino, and Douglas Fairbanks.
This decision was made by Rooney’s trustee and temporary executor, Michael Augustine, following the resolution of a dispute with Rooney’s estranged wife, Jan Chamberlin Rooney. Jan had wanted the burial to take place in Westlake, where the couple previously lived.
