PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has ordered flags at the Capitol lowered to half-staff Wednesday for the funeral of former state legislator Stanley A. Johnson.

Johnson died Saturday at the age of 88.

He served in the House of Representatives from 1968 to 1977. Gov. Nils Boe appointed Johnson to fill a vacancy in the district, and he was re-elected to serve three more terms.
