LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder has ordered U.S. and Michigan flags to be lowered to half-staff Friday, April 28, within the state Capitol complex in honor of former state Rep. Alvin Kukuk, who died Saturday, April 22.
"Rep. Kukuk was a dedicated public servant and will be remembered for his commitment to his community. I send my deepest condolences to his family and friends during this time," Snyder said.
Kukuk served in the Michigan House of Representatives from 1993-1998. Prior to serving in the House, he was a member of the Army National Guard and volunteer firefighter as well as a small business owner. He served on the Macomb County Board of Commissioners and was elected Macomb Township clerk and supervisor.
A service in his honor will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 29 at the Will & Schwartzkoff Funeral Home located at 233 North Gratiot Avenue in Mount Clemens.
This flag order is in accordance with Executive Order 2013-10. Michigan residents, businesses, schools, local governments and other organizations are encouraged to display the flag at half-staff. Flags should be returned to full staff on Saturday, April 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.
