Mark Balelo's family cremated his body few days after he committed suicide, but still considering where to put the ashes.
A source linked to the family told TMZ that Balelo's family cremated his body last Thursday, and planned to create a memorial service next week.
The family still has no idea where to put the ashes, but will have the final decision by next week.
Balelo was found dead last Monday at his Simi Valley, California auction house's garage, after he got arrested for controlled substances possession, E! News reported.
The authorities declared Balelo to have committed suicide after they found the 40-year-old Storage Wars star in the car with the motor running.
He died from inhaling carbon monoxide.
It was not the first time Balelo had a run-in with the law for controlled substance possession.
He pleaded guilty back in 2009 to sale and transport controlled substance, in which he was sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years probation.
