Parnell orders flags lowered for Rogers

Posted: Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Gov. Sean Parnell Tuesday ordered flags in Alaska to be flown at half-staff Thursday in honor of George Rogers, who died Sunday at age 93.

Rogers, of Juneau, was a key figure in Alaska's statehood effort, serving as technical consultant to the Alaska Constitutional Convention.

"George will be remembered for his work shaping our Constitution," Governor Parnell said.

"His never-ending devotion to his state will be part of his legacy," Parnell said.

Rogers is survived by his wife of 69 years and five of six adopted children. State flags will be returned to full-staff on Friday.
