Tuesday to be day of honor and remembrance for former President Ford

The day will not be an official state holiday, and all state offices will be open. State employees and state schools will observe regular schedules as well.

Flags throughout the state will fly at half staff and Nevadans are encouraged to observe the passing of our nation’s 38th president.

“Gerald Ford was an honorable public servant who helped unite our country during a troubling time in our nation’s history,” Gov. Guinn said.

“On behalf of all Nevadans, Dawn and I extend our deepest condolences to former first lady Betty Ford and the entire Ford family,” said Gov.-elect Gibbons.

Gibbons plans to issue a formal proclamation honoring the life of President Gerald R. Ford after he takes office Monday.
