I would love to go since he was such a huge part of my childhood. He reminds me of a real life Gandalf. Would it be appropriate considering I am now atheist? I don't think he would mind because I remember him as kind, thoughtful, and tolerant towards atheists. But the reason my family left that church was because so many people were judgmental towards my disabled brother.

Only go if your heart is truly into. Don't worry about the judgmental people cause you got know that karma will meet them kind. If this will make you
feel better than go , if it would make you upset and uncomfortable than
don't go it's entirely how you feel.
Something I like share and please don't think I'm annoying. This Atheist
was about to die in plane crash he never believed in God. While on the
phone with his mother he said, mom i am about to die I want tell you
i love you with all my heart , minutes before the plane crashed his last
words his mom heard was "Omg" ( Oh My God) His mother who was a
Christian said, sure my son was atheist i never judged him but i do know
his soul was saved and his internal life is in the hands of God she smiled
said i know it i can feel it inside.1

I think you should go. It doesn't matter that you're an atheist. You had a personal relationship with him and that's all that matters. Just because some people in the church may have been judgmental shouldn't make a difference, the memorial is for him and if you had a good relationship with him, I'm sure he wouldn't mind at all for you to be there.2
