Memorial services for former Alexandria Mayor Kerry Donley have been announced.

The family will receive guests at Everly-Wheatley Funeral Home (1500 W. Braddock Road, Alexandria) on Sunday (July 24) from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., according to an obituary. A prayer service will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Donley, 66, died unexpectedly at his home in Alexandria on Wednesday (July 13). The Alexandria Times reported he died of a heart attack. He lived in the city for nearly six decades.

The obituary notes there will also be a funeral mass at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church (1427 W. Braddock Road, Alexandria) on Monday, July 25, at 11 a.m., followed by a private interment.

Donley was mayor from 1996 to 2003, after which he became chair of the Democratic Party of Virginia for two years. He was also vice mayor from 1994 to 1996, and then again when he returned to politics from 2009 to 2012.

Donley tried running for mayor again in 2015, but lost in a three-way primary between then-Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille and former Mayor Allison Silberberg, the latter going on to win the general election. Professionally, he was the former athletic director at T.C. Williams High School (now Alexandria City High School), and spent years as a senior vice president at John Marshall Bank and Virginia Commerce Bank.

Donley is survived by his wife, Eva, his five children and grandchildren.
