BOSTON — The family of former Mayor Kevin White has announced funeral arrangements for the man who led Boston for 16 years, including during racially turbulent times in the 1970s.
White had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2003 and died Friday at his Boston home. He was 82.
Residents, well-wishers and others can pay their last respects Tuesday at a public viewing at Parkman House, a city-owned mansion next to the State House and where White spent a lot of time making decisions as mayor. The six-hour viewing is set to begin at 2 p.m.
Family spokesman George Regan says a public funeral Mass is set for 11 a.m. Wednesday at St. Cecilia Roman Catholic Church, led by two priests who were good friends of White.
Burial will be private.
