Flags will be flown at half-staff Monday to honor state Sen. Robert M. Kerr, who died Wednesday at the age of 73.
Gov. Brad Henry made the order Friday, and it includes any flag on state property. Henry said Kerr was a "consummate professional" who worked to better Oklahoma and the state Senate.
Kerr was elected to the Oklahoma State Senate in 1987. He advocated for rural Oklahoma and authored major agriculture, economic development and transportation legislation.
Funeral services for Kerr are scheduled for 3 p.m. Monday at the Altus High School Auditorium.
