Flags lowered in honor of former state legislator Martin Buth

LANSING, MI – Gov. Rick Snyder has ordered U.S. and Michigan flags to be lowered to half-staff Monday, July 31, within the state Capitol complex in honor of former state Rep. Martin Buth, who died Monday, July 24.

“Martin was a dedicated public official and devoted his time in office to being a strong voice for the people of West Michigan,” Snyder said. “I send my sincere condolences to his family, friends and community.”

Buth served in the Michigan House of Representatives from 1959-1982. He later served two terms on the Kent County Board of Commissioners and was an active member of the Comstock Rotary Club.

A service in his honor will take place Monday, July 31, at 3 p.m. at the Grace Episcopal Church in East Grand Rapids.
