Gov. Green orders flags to half-staff following death of veteran Honolulu legislator
Governor Josh Green, M.D. has ordered that the United States flag and the Hawaiʻi state flag be flown at half-staff in honor of Honolulu veteran State and City legislator Ron Menor, who died unexpectedly Monday after a medical emergency.
“Ron was a dedicated public servant, winning re-election after re-election for many years, showing how much his constituents appreciated his work on their behalf,” said Gov. Green. “Jaime and I send our love and condolences to Patty and her ʻohana and know that the community Ron served for so many years, is also in mourning.”
Flags will be flown at half-staff at all state offices and agencies as well as the Hawaiʻi National Guard in the State of Hawaiʻi, until sunset on Saturday.
Details of his celebration of life are pending and will be made available when arrangements have been finalized. “Until then, we pay him our respects for his heart and his dedicated service, with our lowered flags,” Gov. Green said.
The veteran lawmaker was 67 years old.
