Gov. Jay Inslee has directed flags at all state agency facilities to half-staff on Friday, March 22, in memory of former Gov. Booth Gardner who died last week at the age of 76 from complications from Parkinson’s disease.
Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business on Saturday, March 30, or first thing Monday morning, April 1, the governor's office said.
Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition, the governor's office said.
