For Michigan
Only
LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder has ordered U.S. flags within the State Capitol Complex to be lowered to half-staff Monday, Nov. 28, in honor of former state Sen. John D. Pridnia who died Thursday, Nov. 17, after a two-year battle with ALS.

“John was a dedicated businessman, public servant and community member and spent many years of his life serving the people of Michigan. I send my deepest condolences to his family, friends and community,” Snyder said.

Pridnia was a business owner for 10 years in Northern Michigan. He later served two terms in the state House of Representatives and two terms in the state Senate. He was passionate about business, tourism, conservation and public health. He was most proud of his accomplishments while chairing the Senate Health Policy Committee. After retiring from the Legislature, Pridnia continued his life of serving others by working within the Port Austin community.

A funeral service will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 26 at St. Michaels Catholic Church located at 8661 Independence Street in Port Austin.

This flag order is in accordance with Executive Order 2013-10. Michigan residents, businesses, schools, local governments and other organizations also are encouraged to display the flag at half-staff. Flags should be returned to full-staff on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
