A visitation is scheduled at an Oakland County funeral home for best-selling author Elmore Leonard.
Leonard's family will receive friends from 2-8 p.m. Friday at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home in Clawson, north of Detroit. A funeral Mass is scheduled at 10 a.m. Saturday at Holy Name Church in Birmingham.
Leonard died Tuesday at age 87 in his Bloomfield Township home from complications from a stroke.
Leonard's researcher and webmaster, Gregg Sutter, posted the information on the author's Facebook page.
"The post I dreaded to write, and you dreaded to read," Sutter wrote. "Elmore passed away at 7:15 this morning from complications from his stroke. He was at home surrounded by his loving family. More to follow."
He had been attempting to recover from a stroke suffered July 29 at a hospital in his hometown of Detroit, according to the Detroit News. Sutter told the newspaper a week later that Leonard had been in the middle of writing his 46th novel.
Known for his direct, witty dialogue, the American writer was a hit among book critics and fans of multiple genres.
Three of Leonard's works have been nominated for the Edgar Allan Poe Award by the Mystery Writers of American: The Switch, nominated for Best Original Paperback Novel of 1978; Split Images, for Best Novel of 1981; and LaBrava, which won for Best Novel in 1983.
Maximum Bob was also awarded the first annual International Association of Crime Writers North American Hammett Prize in 1991. In 1992, the Mystery Writers of America gave Leonard the Grand Master Award and in 2009, he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from PEN USA.
He was one of America's foremost crime writers. His novels included "Out of Sight," "Get Shorty" and "Rum Punch."
More recently, he served as executive producer of the FX drama "Justified." The show featured as its centerpiece U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, a recurring Leonard character.
Leonard is a former adman who wrote Western novels and stories early in his career.
