A memorial service for former Evanston Township High School swimming coach William “Dobbie” Burton will be held on Friday at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 1012 Lake St.

Visitation will be from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and a funeral mass will be at 5 p.m.

ETHS Athletic Director Chris Livatino says the family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in support of pool renovations for the aquatic center at ETHS that was named after Burton earlier this year.

Burton died at age 92 on Sept. 8.
