A state memorial will be held in Calgary for former Alberta Premier Jim Prentice.

The service will be held at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium Friday, October 28 at 11 a.m.

Premier Rachel Notley’s office says the service at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium will be open to the public.

Prentice was killed along with three others last Thursday in a plane crash near Kelowna, B.C.

Investigators are wrapping up their work at the scene of the crash and the wreckage of the four-seat Cessna Citation will now be removed by helicopter and taken to a warehouse for further analysis.
