“I was honored to call Bud a friend,” said Gov. Branstad. “We had the opportunity to hunt together, even as recently as 2010, and I always enjoyed our time together. He will be missed.”
Flags will be at half-staff on the State Capitol Building and on flag displays in the Capitol Complex, and upon all public buildings, grounds, and facilities throughout the state. Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flag at half-staff for the same length of time as a sign of respect.
