LIMA — Ohio Gov. John Kasich has approved lowering flags in Lima to half-staff on Saturday in memory of Army Reservist Dallon Ross States, 26, a native of Lima who died June 11. The approval came after a request from Lima Mayor David Berger, who extended his condolences to States’ family in a statement. “It is only fitting and proper to honor this military serviceman by lowering the flags on all city buildings and grounds to half-staff and by publicly calling the community’s attention to recognize the committed service and sacrifices made by Reservist Ross,” he said.
From his guest book: May God bless this patriot warrior, Dallon, and hold in his everlasting arms. I thank him for his service on behalf of our country. Sending my condolences to Dallon’s family, friends, and to all whose lives were touched by this fine young man. And Dallon, we Ohioans will continue to say “GO BUCKS” for you. Never forgotten. ALWAYS remembered.
