A memorial service for civic leader Gary Schimmels is set for 11 a.m. Tuesday at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 4521 N. Arden Road in Otis Orchards.
Schimmels, a former Spokane Valley deputy mayor and longtime councilman, died unexpectedly Wednesday at his home. He was 75.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that contributions be made in Schimmels' name to Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Services (SCRAPS), 2521 N. Flora Road, Spokane Valley, WA 99216.
A luncheon is planned at the church following the memorial.
