State Auditor Tom Schweich will be laid to rest Tuesday after a memorial service expected to be attended by many Missouri elected officials.
Services will be held at the Church of St. Michael and St. George in Clayton, where Schweich was a member. Schweich, who was a leading Republican candidate in the 2016 governor race, died in an apparent suicide Thursday morning.
All of Missouri’s statewide elected officials are expected to attend the funeral, including Gov. Jay Nixon and Sens. Roy Blunt and Claire McCaskill.
