Governor Mark Dayton has ordered all flags to be flown at half-staff on Sunday in remembrance of a Mapleton Firefighter who died last week.

On Friday, March 30, 58-year old Timothy Wayne Royce died from a heart attack after responding to a traffic crash and medical call the previous day. He served on the Mapleton Fire Department for seventeen years and also worked at Dietz Foods in Mapleton.

A celebration of life for Royce will be held on Sunday at Maple River High School.
