FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — The funeral for former US Rep. Mark Souder of Indiana will be held on Oct. 8.
Souder, a Republican who represented northeastern Indiana in Congress for more than 15 years, died Monday. He was 72.
Souder disclosed in January that he had inoperable pancreatic cancer. He said a biopsy taken during surgery revealed a large cancerous mass on his pancreas.
Souder was running for a ninth term in the US House when he abruptly resigned in May 2010 after admitting to an extramarital affair with a woman who worked in his congressional office.
His funeral will be held at 11 am on Oct. 8 at Emmanuel Community Church in Fort Wayne, with calling one hour before, FairHaven Funeral Home has posted on its website.
Calling also will be held 3-5 pm and 6-8 pm on Oct. 7 at the church, the funeral home said.
