JUNEAU -- The family of the late state Rep. Carl Gatto is planning a private funeral Friday in Belfair, Wash.

The Palmer Republican died Tuesday from complications related to cancer. He was 74.

Arrangements are still being made for a memorial service in the Matanuska Valley, tentatively for the weekend of May 12.

Gatto's family has provided a mailing address for cards: 50 Northeast Bella Vista Drive, Belfair, Wash., 98528.

The family says donations can be sent to The Children's Place, a nonprofit organization that addresses child abuse and neglect, the Prostate Cancer Foundation, or local animal shelters.
