Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer has ordered flags be flown at half-staff until sun down Sunday, September 2 in honor of United States Senator John McCain.
In a statement released Monday morning, Colyer said McCain will long be remembered for his years of dedicated service to our nation.
“He displayed great courage and strength in the way he lived his life. We are grateful to him for his devotion to this country and send our deepest condolences to his family as they grieve his passing.”
McCain, 81, died at his ranch in Arizona after a yearlong battle with brain cancer. On Saturday night, a black hearse accompanied by a police motorcade could be seen driving away from his ranch near Sedona, Arizona.
