Gov. Jim Justice has issued a proclamation ordering all United States and West Virginia state flags at the Capitol Complex and all state-owned facilities in Roane County be displayed at half-staff, from dawn to dusk on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020, in commemoration of the distinguished life and service of volunteer firefighter Mark Elliot Horwich.

A member of the Clover-Roane Volunteer Fire Department, Horwich died in the line of duty while responding to a call on Saturday, Jan. 11.

Horwich had worked as a firefighter since 2001, serving with the Boys Town Fire Department in Nebraska and the Spencer-Roane Volunteer Fire Department in West Virginia prior to his time at Clover-Roane VFD.



**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.
