The Speaker’s office has confirmed that the state funeral for former Yona mayor Ken Joe Ada has been set for Thursday March 5.
The state funeral will be at 10 am at the Guam Congress Building. Ada will be buried the next day on March 6.
Dededo Mayor Melissa Savares spoke to K57’s Patti Arroyo on Monday morning, saying she’d had contact with the family, who requested the state funeral over the weekend.
Ada passed away at Naval Hospital last Tuesday. He is survived by his wife and two young children.
Ada was the mayor of Yona from 2013 to 2017 and unsuccessfully ran for senator under the Republican ticket in 2018.
