Hawaii flags to fly at half-staff Saturday in honor of former lawmaker

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 05:50 a.m. HST, Feb 16, 2012

Hawaii flags will fly at half-staff Saturday in honor of late Rep. Samuel Lee.

Lee, who served in the State House of Representatives from 1986 to 1996, died Feb. 10.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie ordered that all flags at state offices and agencies fly at half-staff, and also issued a proclamation honoring Lee.

The proclamation honors Lee as a diplomat who served in the U.S. Foreign Service for 26 years, chairman of the Mililani Neighborhood Board and community leader. As a community organizer, Lee led a campaign that forced developers to correct pesticide contamination in Mililani.

Abercrombie also expressed condolences for Lee’s family. Lee is survived by his wife, state Rep. Marilyn Lee; his daughter Kammy; and sons John, Tom and Andrew.
