A funeral service will be held this weekend for former Napa County Undersheriff Michael Loughran, who died while snorkeling in Maui last week.

The service is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday at the Hillside Christian Center at 100 Anderson Road in Napa.

Loughran, 61, died Feb. 3 while snorkeling in front of the Ka'anapali Beach Club in Maui with his wife.

He was caught in a strong current and tried to swim to shore but had difficulty breathing, according to the Maui County Police Department.

Loughran held on to a buoy until a kayaker brought him to shore, but he collapsed and died a short time later, Maui police said.

Maui police Lt. William Juan said the official cause of his death has not yet been determined by the local medical examiner's office.

Friends and co-workers remembered Loughran as a man who was dedicated to his family and community.

Loughran was active in the Rotary Club of Napa and was a volunteer and board member for The Pathway Home in Yountville, which provides services for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

He is survived by his wife Denise, son Kevin, daughter Erin Hastings, granddaughter Josephine and in-laws.

The family is requesting that anyone wishing to honor Loughran make a donation to The Pathway Home in lieu of sending flowers.
