Why flags are at half staff today: Friday, April 8

Flags in Southborough are flying at half staff today in honor of Reserve Police Officer Joseph Bennett who passed away earlier this week at the age of 68 after a battle with cancer.

Bennett retired from his position as a full-time communications officer in 2007 after 16 years on the job. At the time of his death, he was still an active reserve officer, a position he had held for 35 years.

Visiting hours will be held today from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at the Morris Funeral Home, 40 Main St. Southborough. A funeral will take place at St. Matthew Church on Saturday at 11:00 am. Burial will follow in the Rural Cemetery.
