DOVER – With the passing of former State Representative William “Bill” Vernon Sr. on Monday, March 10, Governor Markell has ordered the American and Delaware flags at state buildings and facilities be flown at half-staff beginning immediately until the close of business on Tuesday, March 25 as a mark of respect for Representative Vernon and his service to Delaware.

Representative Vernon served in the Delaware House from 1977-1981. He was also a former president of the Rehoboth Beach Chamber of Commerce and remained active in Sussex County community affairs throughout his life, serving four years as chairman of the building committee for New Covenant Presbyterian Church in Lewes.

A memorial service for Representative Vernon will be held Tuesday, March 25 in Lewes.
