Sen. Mike Enzi announces his retirement during a press conference at Gillette City Hall Saturday morning, May 4, 2019.

GILLETTE (AP) — A public ceremony to commemorate the life of former U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi will be held Aug. 6 at the Gillette College Pronghorn Center, the Gillette Memorial Chapel announced.

Enzi, a Wyoming Republican known as a consensus-builder in an increasingly polarized Washington, died Monday after he broke his neck in a bicycle accident near his home in Gillette. He was 77.

He served 24 years in the U.S. Senate, 10 years in the Wyoming Legislature and eight years as Gillette’s mayor.

The ceremony is set to begin at 1 p.m. and will be officiated by Pastor Donavon Voigt of First Baptist Church.

Instead of flowers, the funeral home suggests making donations to Project Mercy, an organization combatting poverty in Ethiopia; the Mike and Diana Enzi Scholarship Fund at the University of Wyoming; and the Wyoming Community Foundation Mike & Diana Enzi Charitable Fund.
