Jack Nicholson and Val Kilmer were among the many friends and family who attended Dennis Hopper's memorial mass in Ranchos De Taos, New Mexico, on Wednesday, the Associated Press reports. The movie icon died on Saturday at age 74 after a battle with prostate cancer. He was diagnosed in 2009.

As Hopper's simple wood coffin was brought into the chapel, the church's bells chimed. After the two-hour service, the bells chimed again when his coffin was brought out and taken away in a funeral procession that included about a half a dozen motorcycles.

Hopper's son, Henry Lee Hopper, read from Walt Whitman's collection of poems, 'Leaves of Grass.' Several other relatives also spoke. As people left the service, they described the mass as "lovely," "tender" and "beautiful."
