The public is invited to attend the 1 p.m. service, dubbed "A Celebration of Life," at El Camino College's Marsee Auditorium. The memorial will be held on what would have been the late columnist's 64th birthday.
Bogert died July 29, about a month after he wrote his final column, ending his 28-year run as a columnist at the Daily Breeze.
In addition to his daughter, others paying tribute to Bogert will be U.S. Rep. Janice Hahn, D-San Pedro; former Daily Breeze reporter Ian Gregor, who sat next to Bogert for about 10 years; his boss, Daily Breeze City Editor Frank Suraci; and Tom Lasser, a member of the Redondo Beach Veterans Memorial Task Force.
Bogert often wrote columns about the veterans group to help raise money for a memorial at Veterans Park.
A slide show created by Daily Breeze staff photographer Sean Hiller will be shown.
Former Daily Breeze Managing Editor Jean Adelsman will serve as the program's master of ceremonies.
Bogert worked for the Lakeland Ledger in Florida and Glendale News-Press before joining the Daily Breeze as a features reporter in 1979. Adelsman appointed him as a columnist five years later.
Bogert estimated he wrote 6,500 columns, ranging in topics from politics and guns to the adventures of his family, which included Rachael, 26; daughter Caitlin, 29; and son, Ian, 18. Just weeks after Bogert died, Caitlin gave birth to his first granddaughter, Charlotte.
