John Glenn will deliver the eulogy at the funeral for Scott Carpenter, the second American to orbit the Earth.
The Boulder Daily Camera reported Thursday that Glenn would be among the dignitaries at the memorial service and that former astronauts would serve as honorary pallbearers. Colorado's congressional delegation has also been invited.
The service will be at St. John's Episcopal Church, which seats 550 people. The funeral will be open to the public.
Carpenter and Glenn were the last survivors of the famed original Mercury 7 astronauts from the "Right Stuff" days of the early 1960s.
