Flags at Half-Staff

Washington State Governor Jay Inslee has directed flags at all state agency facilities to half-staff on Friday, March 22, in memory of former Governor Booth Gardner, who passed away March 15 at the age of 76 of complications from Parkinson’s disease.

Seattle Pacific University is joining other government entities, citizens, and businesses in this recognition. Flags will remain at half-staff until April 1.

A memorial for Gardner will be held Saturday, March 30 at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma.
