PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Former President Bill Clinton is among several guests scheduled to speak at a Wednesday memorial service for Philadelphia philanthropist and businessman Lewis Katz.

Katz, who was one of seven people killed Sunday in a small plane crash in Massachusetts, was known for his support of education, athletics and medicine, as well as for co-owning the Philadelphia Inquirer, which had recently emerged from a long legal battle.

The memorial service for Katz is scheduled for Wednesday, June 4th at 11 a.m. on Temple’s Main Campus.
