[ARCHIVED] City Flag Lowered To Half-Staff For Longtime Geneva Contributor

The City of Geneva flag outside City Hall has been lowered in honor of longtime Geneva resident Bernard "Bernie" Naughton, who passed away March 25 at age 87.

Mr. Naughton was an U.S. Army veteran and a retired letter carrier with the U.S. Postal Service. He also served as the athletic director and coach at St. Peter Catholic School in Geneva, coach for Geneva Park District basketball and baseball teams, high school baseball umpire and as a mentor to children across the Tri-Cities.

The flag will remain lowered through Monday, April 3. A moment of silence will be held in Mr. Naughton's honor prior to the start of the Geneva City Council meeting that evening.

The City would like to express its condolences to the Naughton family. An obituary can be found online.
