Flags ordered to half-staff in honor of Bunch

CORBIN — FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Flags at state office buildings are to be lowered to half-staff Sunday in honor of former state Rep. Dewayne Bunch, who died Wednesday.

Bunch, of Williamsburg, was a schoolteacher and represented the 82nd District.

He was injured in April 2011 when he intervened in a fight among students at Whitley County High School, where he taught math. He was struck by a stray punch and hit his head on the floor of the school cafeteria.

Gov. Steve Beshear directed flags be flown at half-staff on the day of Bunch’s funeral, which will be at 4 p.m. at Croley Funeral Home in Williamsburg.
