After the service, Cameron took to Instagram to share a tribute to his grandfather.

"The King. You will be sorely missed, but your run was nothing short of perfection! There are no words adequate to express the Love and reverence that I feel towards you. Your legacy lives on through the ages; as will my connection with you," he wrote along with two throwback photos of Kirk.

Carys, the 16-year-old daughter of Michael and Zeta-Jones, also posted a tribute.

"My Pappy was and forever will be my inspiration, my biggest supporter and the best grandpa in the world. I remember I would send him videos of me from my dance competitions and he would watch them on repeat. He would always ask me 'Carys, when are we going to dance together?,' she wrote.

"This is how he was with our entire family, always ready to hear what new shows we were in, what sports we were playing, what new songs I was singing. He was, and still is a tremendous inspiration to the world through not only his incredible acting career, but his philanthropy and generosity that moved mountains."

Although he was adored by millions, to me he was my Pappy, my superhero. He came from nothing yet, through his drive and determination, made a name for himself. He joined our family together and lived an incredible long life," she continued.

"I spent 16 years of my life loving and being loved by Kirk Douglas and that is the greatest gift I could ever have. I will forever be saving that last dance for you Pappy. I love you."

Michael, 75, shared the news of his father's death on Instagram last week.

"It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103," Michael wrote. "To the world he was a legend, an actor from the golden age of movies who lived well into his golden years, a humanitarian whose commitment to justice and the causes he believed in set a standard for all of us to aspire to," he shared.

"But to me and my brothers Joel and Peter he was simply Dad, to Catherine, a wonderful father-in-law, to his grandchildren and great grandchild their loving grandfather, and to his wife Anne, a wonderful husband."
