Kansas Appellate Judge Passes Away

Flags at the state capitol in Topeka and all court buildings and facilities have been directed to lower flags to half-mast in memory of Kansas Court of Appeals Judge Jerry Elliot who passed away on Monday. The dictum came from Governor Mark Parkinson yesterday afternoon.

Judge Elliot had served on the Kansas Court of Appeals since 1987 when he was appointed by then Governor Mike Hayden.

The flags will remain at half-mast until after Judge Elliot’s funeral. The date of the funeral has not been made public yet.

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
