Governor Herbert issued the following statement:
Jeanette and I offer our heartfelt condolences on behalf of the State of Utah and all Utahns to the family of Vern Romney. Whether in the halls of state government as attorney general, or on the frontlines as an infantryman in WWII, his was a life of dedicated, principled public and community service. May his loved ones find comfort and peace in the notable life he lived.
The flags will be flown at half-staff at all state facilities from sunrise to sunset on July 20, 2013.
