A second very small private ceremony was held in April, at Universal Studio's backlot 'lagoon' where Creature From the Black Lagoon was filmed. The week of July 14, 2009, Ben Chapman's son, Ben III, traveled to Ben's birthplace, Tahiti. His remaining ashes were scattered there. The home in which he was raised still stands.
