The Matlock star was buried on Roanoke Island on Tuesday afternoon (July 3), a Twiford Funeral Home representative told TMZ.
The funeral service was held just hours after Griffith died at his home. The exact cause of Griffith's remains unknown, but police did confirm that an ambulance had been called to his home early Tuesday.
Griffth's family apparently went ahead with a quick burial because the actor himself had requested for his funeral to take place immediately following his death.
His passing drew tributes from stars including Phillip Phillips, Amy Grant, Russell Simmons, Octavia Spencer and Denise Richards.
Former Andy Griffith Show star Ron Howard also honoured his friend's life and legacy on Twitter, writing: "Andy Griffith His pursuit of excellence and the joy he took in creating served generations & shaped my life I'm forever grateful RIP Andy."
US President Barack Obama expressed sadness at Griffith's passing as well in an official statement.
"Michelle and I were saddened to hear about the passing of Andy Griffith this morning. A performer of extraordinary talent, Andy was beloved by generations of fans and revered by entertainers who followed in his footsteps," Obama wrote.
