ALEXANDRIA, VA (WTAQ) - Funeral services will be held a week from Wednesday for Glen Pommerening, a Milwaukee native who served in a variety of state and federal government posts. 

The 85-year-old Pommerening died last Tuesday at his home in Alexandria Virginia from lung cancer.

He served for 12 years in the state Assembly, and then became a deputy administration secretary under former Governor Warren Knowles. 

In 1970, he moved to suburban Washington D.C. to become a deputy attorney general in the Nixon administration.

After the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973 in which the Justice Department was shaken up, Pommerening moved up to an assistant attorney general post for administration. He later spent 17 years as a deputy assistant director in the U.S. Bureau of Prisons. 

Pommerening retired from public service in 1998. His funeral will be in Alexandria, just outside of Washington.
