A memorial service for Navy Cmdr. Duane G. Wolfe is scheduled for 11 a.m. June 2 at the Perlee Theater, Camp San Luis Obispo, Calif.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations to be made to Parents Helping Parents Family Resource Center. The San Luis Obispo organization can be reached at (805)549-8148.
