Walter Cronkite’s final resting place will be next to his late wife in Missouri.
The iconic newsman’s longtime chief of staff says a private funeral service has been scheduled for Thursday at St. Bartholomew’s Church in Manhattan.
A separate memorial also will be held within the next few weeks at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
Cronkite is to be cremated and his remains buried at a later date next to his wife, Betsy, in the family plot at a cemetery in Kansas City, Mo.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to the Walter and Betsy Cronkite Foundation, which will distribute contributions to various charities the couple supported during their lives.
