DOVER – With the passing of former State Representative and Superior Court Judge Vincent A. Bifferato on Friday, July 25, Governor Markell has ordered the American and Delaware flags at state buildings and facilities be flown at half-staff today (Wednesday, July 30) as a mark of respect for Judge Bifferato and his service to Delaware.
Judge Bifferato served in the House of Representatives from 1964-1966. While a member of the House, he was the driving force behind the creation of Delcastle Park. After his time serving in the General Assembly, he chaired the State Alcohol Control Commission. In 1968, he was appointed as a judge of the Superior Court of the State of Delaware, a position he held for the next 32 years.
A mass of Christian burial will be held at 10 a.m. today at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Wilmington.
