Former Norfolk Mayor Harley Rector has died at age 84.
A spokesman for Home for Funerals in Norfolk said Thursday that Rector died Tuesday at a Norfolk hospital.
Rector's funeral is scheduled for Monday at First United Methodist Church in Norfolk.
Former city administrator Mike Nolan remembers Rector as someone who "cared so much about the citizens of Norfolk and the city staff." He also says Rector had an extraordinary personality and a great sense of humor.
Rector served two four-terms, leaving office at the end of 2000. He'd been an educator and school administrator in Norfolk.
