Funeral services for vocalist Jimmy Borges have been set for Saturday at Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace on Bishop Street.

Borges, often dubbed “Hawaii’s Frank Sinatra,” died May 30 after a long battled with cancer. He was 80.

Members of the public are welcome to attend visitation and funeral services for the late singer.

Visitation runs from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, and a mass begins at noon.

Parking is available at Century Square garage, and at metered lots near the cathedral.

Aloha attire is appropriate.

Borges’ ashes will be scattered off Waikiki on Sunday, and a celebration of life will follow at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

The celebration of life is also open to the public. The family asks that attendees not wear shorts or slippers, though aloha attire is appropriate.

The scattering of ashes is set for 9 a.m., while the celebration of life at the hotel’s Monarch Room is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Jimmy Borges Endowed Scholarship fund.
