JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The funeral for longtime Mississippi state Sen. Terry Brown is set for Saturday in his hometown of Columbus.

Visitation is 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, with the funeral at 1 p.m. at the church. Burial will be in Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Columbus.

Brown died Thursday, a year after being diagnosed with lung cancer. He was 64.

Republican Brown had served in the Senate since 2004 in a district that’s entirely in Lowndes County. His colleagues unanimously elected him Senate president pro tempore in early 2012. In that post, Brown presided over the Senate when the lieutenant governor was gone. He was also a top budget writer.

Brown served in the Mississippi House from 1988 to 2000, and ran unsuccessfully for lieutenant governor in 1999.
