Flags at Oneida County Offices will be flown at half-staff in honor of the late Associate Justice John Buckley.

In a statement, County Executive Anthony Picente says Judge Buckley was a fair and wise man who approached his time on the bench with humility and honor.

Picente says he was a permanent fixture in Oneida County and an advocate for the region.

Buckley, who also served in the state Assembly, died on Tuesday at the age of 77.
