Flags To Fly At Half-Staff


Governor Asa Hutchinson has ordered the United States flag and the state flag of Arkansas to be lowered to half-staff in tribute to the memory and honor of State Senator Greg Standridge, R-Russellvile, who passed away Thursday morning. The flag will remain at half-staff until sunset on the day of interment.

Governor Hutchinson issued the following statement on Thursday:

“I am saddened by the passing of Sen. Greg Standridge—a friend and dedicated public servant. I recently visited with Greg in his home, and even with his illness, he was a source of encouragement and strength. Greg served his community with distinction, and he loved his family most of all. Greg’s passing is a great loss for our state, and he will be missed.”

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge also released a statement offering condolences on the passing of State Senator Greg Strandridge.

“I was saddened to learn of the passing of Sen. Greg Strandridge,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Greg was a friend, a fighter and a man of faith. Not a day went by when he was not working to help his community and even as he faced his difficult diagnosis, he was always a source of encouragement and inspiration. My prayers are with Karen, their children, his constituents in District 16 and his colleagues in the Arkansas State Senate.”
