Flags across the state will fly at half-staff in honor of former dairy farmer turned state representative Martin Buth.

He died last week at the age of 99.

Buth served in the House of Representatives from 1959 to 1982 representing parts of west Michigan.

He will be laid to rest today in Grand Rapids.
