Four of the Pournelle children made a joint announcement on Facebook.
Alex Pournelle also sent this statement to Chaos Manor subscribers:
As you have probably heard, my father, Jerry, passed away on Friday, September 8, 2017. He had attended DragonCon as a guest, was lauded by thousands, and had a tremendously good time. As an author, it would be difficult to think of a better way to be sent off.
Our family also appreciates the outpouring of memorials and reminiscences, both public and private, which have followed.
The public service will be Saturday, September 16, beginning at Noon, at St. Francis de Sales Church, 13368 Valleyheart Drive, Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.
They are working to livestream the service as well.
