Wayne State University plans to hold a memorial service this weekend for former U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, Michigan's longest-serving U.S. senator who died last year.

Sunday's service was announced Monday by Levin's namesake, the school's Levin Center for Oversight and Democracy at Wayne State University Law School.

The Detroit News reports Levin's family, friends and colleagues plan to honor the Detroit Democrat's life and legacy at the memorial on Sunday at the university's Student Center Ballroom in Detroit.

Levin died age 87 in July 2021. He was the longest-serving U.S. senator in Michigan history, serving for 36 years before he retired in 2015.
