(CNN) - A private memorial service for legendary radio host Casey Kasem will be held on Saturday.

A rep for Kasem's daughter Kerri released a statement saying three of his children would be holding the service for family and friends.

The location has been kept private.

The co-founder and host of American Top 40 died on Father's Day at the age of 82.

His final days were overshadowed by a public family dispute over his medical treatment.

He suffered from Lewy body disease, a type of progressive dementia.
