Governor Steve Beshear has ordered flags to fly at half staff Sunday.
It's a tribute to former State Representative Dewayne Bunch.
The Army veteran was critically injured in April of last year trying to break up a fight between students at Whitley County High school where he worked for 17 years.
After the incident, Bunch spent months in rehab centers in Lexington and Georgia.
He died from those injuries Wednesday.
Visitation for Bunch is planned for noon until 4pm Sunday at Croley Funeral Home in Williamsburg.
Funeral services will begin immediately after the visitation at 4 p.m.
