Lorne Greene was the imposing Canadian-born actor who served as a surrogate father to a vast television audience for years as the patriarch of the on-screen Cartwright family in the western series "Bonanza". From the success of the 14-year run of Bonanza, After "Bonanza," Mr. Greene starred in other television series, including "Battlestar Galactica" and invested well in real estate, did commercial work and made wildlife documentaries. And much like his on-screen son and good friend Michael Landon, Lorne was just a really nice guy all around.

Grave Location Description

As you walk into the mausoleum go straight ahead and when you’re facing Jack Benny’s tomb, simply walk left (east) past Eddie Cantor’s crypt, and through the door, out onto a small, outdoor walkway lined with glass-enclosed rooms, and featuring a low, round fountain. The glass room in front of you, to the right side, is labeled “Landon.” This is where Michael Landon, the star of TV’s “Bonanza,” “Little House on the Prairie,” and “Highway to Heaven.” is interred. Now turn right and walk along the walkway about 75 feet and turn into the lawn area where Lorne Greene is resting comfortably.
