Flags lowered in memory of former senator

by Staff Reports

Gov. Pat McCrory ordered all North Carolina flags to be flown at half-staff Tuesday in honor of former Senator Robert D. "Bob" Warren Sr., who died Friday.

Warren, 84, a Sampson County native, served in the N.C. Senate from 1980-1988. He was honored for his service with the Order of the Long Leaf Pine and a portion of I-40 in Johnston and Sampson counties dedicated as the "Sen. Robert D. Warren Highway."

Flags are to be flown at half-staff until sunset Wednesday, the day of his funeral service.
