Posted: Updated:

Gov. Dave Heineman is asking Nebraskans to fly flags at half-staff Friday in honor of former Congressman John Y. McCollister.

The gesture take place on the day of his interment. He died on Nov. 1 at the age of 92 following a battle against cancer.

McCollister served three terms from 1971 to 1977 in the United States House of Representatives for Omaha's 2nd Congressional District.

Additionally, he served as a Navy radar officer in the Pacific during World War II.
