PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A public memorial service for Philadelphia Inquirer co-owner Lewis Katz will be held Wednesday at Temple University in Philadelphia.

The 72-year-old Katz and six others died Saturday in a private plane crash near Boston.

Katz was a 1963 graduate of Temple, a school trustee and a major donor.

Platt Memorial Chapels in nearby Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is handling funeral arrangements for Katz and 67-year-old Susan Asbell of Cherry Hill, who was also killed in the crash. She was a friend of Katz and director of the Boys and Girls Club of Camden, one of Katz’s many charitable endeavors.

The funeral home says the funerals won’t be set until Massachusetts authorities release the bodies.

The service for Katz is scheduled for 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Temple Performing Arts Center.
