A local Pearl Harbor survivor died in his sleep Saturday at the age of 97.

Donald Stratton's family said in a post on his Facebook page that he was surrounded by love to the end, passing away peacefully with his wife of 69 years and his son beside him.

The public is invited to a memorial service for Stratton scheduled for Feb. 29 at 10 a.m. The service will be held at the Rocky Mountain Calvary Chapel at 4285 N. Academy Boulevard. Attendees are encouraged to wear Hawaiian shirts that are red, white and blue.

Parking is expected to be limited, so the Pikes Peak Heroes Legacy Committee recommends attendees park at the east end lot of Doherty High School at 4515 Barnes Road. Busses will transport riders to the Chapel every ten minutes.
