Steve Jobs Funeral is Friday; No Public Service Planned

The funeral for Apple co-founder and long-time CEO Steve Jobs will be today -- on Friday, according to a report. The service will be private, and there will be no public funeral or service, reported The Wall Street Journal. The newspaper quotes a "person familiar with the matter" who said it is characterized as a "small private gathering. They would not say when it would take place or where -- only that was Friday. Jobs died on Wednesday following a long battle with illness. He had undergone surgery for pancreatic cancer and also had a liver transplant. The controversial Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas said on Wednesday it planned to picket Jobs' funeral, if a public service were hold. The church is known for picketing the funerals of U.S. soldiers and public figures. The small independent church has an anti-gay stance among other controversial positions

I guess the funeral was a bit private but not for public service.

I don't see who would WANT to go to his funeral besides Apple fanatics.

A funeral should ALWAYS be a private function for close family and friends. It's only the media circus of the last few decades that has us believing anything else.

The man deserves some peace and respect in death, just like any other man. Those who would want to go cry at a stranger's funeral because they REALLY like their iPods are deranged.

There will be more than family at Steve Job's funeral, at least outside. Our good ole friends at Westboro Babtist Church plan on protesting it.

(CBS) - The friends and family and close friends at Steve Jobs' funeral will apparently be joined by the serial funeral protesters of the Westboro Baptist Church.

Yes, the Westboro Baptist Church - the Kansas-based organization with a history of holding controversial and politically inflammatory protests - has announced that its members plan to picket the Apple co-founder's funeral, according to CBS affiliate WTSP

And just for sake of irony.......

While protesting the funeral of a notable figure is nothing new for the controversial Kansas church, there was a touch of irony as the announcement came "via Twitter for iPhone."
