Southfork Ranch in Parker will honor the life of Larry Hagman, aka J.R. Ewing, this Sunday.

The ranch will offer free public tours between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. followed by a public memorial reception where guests may leave cards, flowers and sign a memorial book.

Southfork Ranch released the following statement Monday:

Southfork Ranch mourns the loss of Larry Hagman along with his fans around the world. Southfork was considered the home of his long time larger than life character JR Ewing and Larry  also considered Southfork his home away from home. He was always excited to come back to the ranch and even had a family outing planned
the day of his passing.

Larry Hagman brought so much life and excitement to the show Dallas and his dynamic personality and great sense of humor will never be forgotten. The filming at the ranch has been like family coming home and we will all miss him.

Hagman, who was born in Fort Worth, died Friday at Medical City Dallas from complications in his battle with cancer. Small groups of people began memorializing Hagman at the ranch on Saturday.

Formal funeral and memorial plans for Hagman have not yet been revealed.
