INDIANAPOLIS–The funeral for former Indianapolis mayor and U.S. senator from Indiana Richard Luger, will be Wednesday, May 15, 1 p.m., at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, in Indianapolis. Lugar served as a lay elder at the church.
The senator will lie in state at the state capitol rotunda, beginning at noon, Tuesday, May 14, after a brief ceremony conducted by Gov. Eric Holcomb.
The Lugar family will greet visitors from 2 to 7 p.m. May 14.
A statement from the Lugar Center said the church will likely not be able to seat everyone who wants to attend. The service will be streamed on the internet.
“We have received inquiries regarding memorial contributions; the family has asked that these be directed to The Lugar Center in order to continue the Senator’s work on nonproliferation, global food security and bipartisan governance,” said the statement from the Center.
