A funeral is scheduled Monday for State Sen. Michael O'Pake, who had been the legislature's longest-serving member.

Senate officials said Tuesday public viewings would be held at St. Margaret Roman Catholic Church in Reading from 3 to 8 p.m. on Sunday and from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Monday, followed by a Funeral Mass at noon. Interment will be private.

O'Pake died Monday of complications from heart-bypass surgery at Reading Hospital and Medical Center.

A Democrat, the 70-year-old O'Pake was first elected to the state House of Representatives in 1968 and to the state Senate four years later. - AP
