CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice is ordering state flags to half-staff to commemorate the life of a former state senator.
The governor has issued a proclamation to lower state flags on Saturday for Jesse Guills, Jr. Justice says Guills died late last month at 73-years-old.
The governor’s proclamation says Guills served in the U.S. Army as a 2nd Lieutenant from 1971 to 1972 and later became a state senator from 2002 to 2010. He also was a member of the West Virginia State Bar Association and the Chairman of the Greenbrier County Airport Authority.
