Gov. Andy Beshear is inviting the public to pay their final respects to former Governor of the Commonwealth John Y. Brown Jr. — who will lie in state from 10 AM until 7 PM Eastern Standard Time Tuesday, November 29.
Brown’s family will host a public visitation from 3 until 7 that evening in the Capitol’s Rotunda.
Serving from 1979-83 as the state’s 55th governor, Brown died Monday. He was 88 years old.
Beshear called Brown a “remarkable leader” who was committed to serving the people of Kentucky, who made the state “a better place.”
A private memorial service will be held Wednesday, November 30, in the Capitol.
Tuesday, Beshear directed all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff in Brown’s honor, until sunset of interment. Individuals, businesses and organizations throughout the state are encouraged to join in this tribute.
