Apple has postponed the release of its second-quarter earnings by a day to allow employees to attend a memorial service for Bill Campbell, a longtime Apple board member who died earlier this week. The company had been scheduled to discuss its earnings on Monday but has rescheduled the release for Tuesday, Apple said in a statement Wednesday.

"Apple executives and employees will be attending the service to remember Bill and his many years of friendship and service to the Apple community," the company said in a note posted to its investor page.

Campbell, a mentor to such tech leaders as Apple CEO Steve Jobs, Google co-founder Larry Page, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, died Monday at the age of 75 after a long battle with cancer. He was one of the first directors appointed to Apple's board in 1997, when Jobs returned to the company he co-founded. Campbell served on the board until 2014, making him the longest-serving board member in Apple's history.
