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.

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.
