Family, friends and fans will have an opportunity to bid farewell to Harmon Killebrew on Friday at a funeral and memorial service for the Hall of Fame slugger. The Killebrew family and the Minnesota Twins announced plans for the burial and public remembrance of the all-time great, who passed away Tuesday from the effects of esophageal cancer.

Killebrew, who was 74 years old at the time of his passing, will be remembered at a funeral service at Christ's Church of the Valley in Peoria, Ariz., in a ceremony open to the public on Friday at 10 a.m. There will be a private burial service on Monday in Payette, Idaho, the 13-time All-Star's hometown.

In lieu of flowers, the Killebrew family is urging fans to send donations to the Harmon Killebrew Foundation "Legacy Program" at: P.O. Box 14550, Scottsdale, Ariz., 85267 or by visiting

After Monday's services, Killebrew, whose No. 3 jersey was the first to be retired by the Twins organization, will be remembered Thursday night in a public memorial service at Target Field. That service will take place on the field at Minnesota's new park, and additional details will be released when they become available.
