Montgomery to honor late councilman Richard Bollinger at City Hall
The late city councilman will lie in repose before a memorial service on Saturday
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The City of Montgomery will honor the late City Councilman Richard Bollinger on Saturday. He’ll lie in repose at Montgomery City Hall from 10 a.m. through noon before a memorial service starts.
Mayor Steven Reed directed all flags in Montgomery to be lowered to half-staff in his memory. The Montgomery County Commission has made the same decision.
“Richard stood in support of his community, his constituents and his city — all of which he held dear,” Reed said. “He will be remembered for his love of Montgomery and his service to this city.”
Bollinger was a Montgomery native and the owner of an engineering and surveying firm. He served in the Alabama National Guard for 24 years before retiring as a major.
He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Cheryl Lynn Bollinger, as well as four children, eight grandchildren and a brother.
A graveside service will be held for family and friends Sunday at 12:30 p.m. at Greenwood Cemetery.
