Flags Fly at Half-Staff for Bobby Bowden
Gov. Ron DeSantis has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff in memory of former FSU football coach Bobby Bowden.
Flags are flying at half-staff until sunset today in memory of former FSU football coach Bobby Bowden. He died Sunday of cancer at age 91.
Gov. Ron DeSantis ordered flags lowered to honor the coaching legend. A statement from the Governor’s Office calls Bowden an impactful leader who lived a remarkable life serving God’s purpose on and off the field. Earlier this year Bowden was chosen to be the inaugural recipient of the Governor’s Medal of Freedom, the highest citizen award the Governor can give.
Flags will be at half-staff all day at the Leon County Courthouse, Tallahassee City Hall; and the State Capitol.
Bowden will lie in state at the Capitol from 10 until 1, then he’ll lie in repose at FSU’s Moore Athletic Center from 2 to 7.
His funeral tomorrow, Saturday, Aug. 14, is open to the public. It’s at the Tucker Civic Center at 11. The service will be streamed on Seminoles.com.
