For Michigan Only
LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder has ordered U.S. and Michigan flags to be lowered to half-staff Tuesday, Nov. 28, on all state buildings and within the state Capitol complex in honor of Oakland County Sheriff’s Deputy Eric Overall, who was killed in the line of duty on Thursday, Nov. 23.
“Deputy Overall was a deeply devoted police officer and his passing leaves a void not just in his department, but in the law enforcement community,” Snyder said. “Sue and I send our most heartfelt condolences to Eric’s family, friends and colleagues during this difficult time.” Overall was a 22-year veteran with the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department. He was a loving husband and father who enjoyed music and fishing.
A service in his honor will take place Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 11 a.m. at Mt. Zion Church located at 4900 Maybee Road in Independence Charter Township.
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 Wednesday, 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.
