HARRISBURG, Pa. (WKBN) – Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is ordering commonwealth flags to be flown half-staff.

This applies to all commonwealth facilities, public buildings and grounds.

It’s in honor of former Chief Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Stephen Zappala, Sr. who died Friday.

“He lived a life of service to his community and his commonwealth, and will be deeply missed,” Wolf said.

The United States flag is to remain at full-staff through this tribute.

All Pennsylvanians are invited to participate.
