DURANT, OK -- A sitting member of the Durant City Council has died.

Ward 3 council member Leon Sherrer died on Friday at the age of 94.

His funeral is set for Wednesday at 1 p.m. at First Baptist Church. Family hour will be Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Holmes-Coffey-Murray Funeral Home.

Sherrer will be buried in Antlers, where he graduated from high school in 1939.
