Flags at half-staff to honor former Rep. Kringen

Gov. Dennis Daugaard asks that all flags in the state be flown at half-staff on Thursday, June 23, 2011, from 8 a.m. until sunset in honor of former state Rep. Dale Kringen of Madison.

Kringen, who died June 17, served from 1993-1996 in the South Dakota House of Representatives.

"Dale was a respected legislator who served his district and the state very well,” Gov. Daugaard said. “We are indebted to him for that service and express condolences to his family."

A funeral service will be held Thursday at 3 p.m. at the Dakota Prairie Playhouse in Madison. Burial will be in the Flandreau Cemetery at Flandreau.
