Services will be held Oct. 17 for former state lieutenant governor and lawmaker Mervyn M. Dymally.

Dymally, who blazed trails for generations of African American officeholders, died Sunday at age 86.

A viewing will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at Holy Cross Mortuary, 5835 W. Slauson Ave., Culver City.  The funeral will begin at the same location at 12:30 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to a  newly established Mervyn M. Dymally Memorial Fund to honor his life and career and carry on his legacy, particularly in health and education matters.

The fund is being administered by Dymally's widow, Alice, and former chief of staff Kenneth Orduna.
