PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Former South Dakota legislator Stanley A. Johnson has died. He was 88.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says Johnson died Saturday.

Johnson served in the House of Representatives from 1968 to 1977. Gov. Nils Boe appointed Johnson to fill a vacancy in the district, and he was re-elected to serve three more terms.

Daugaard has ordered flags lowered to half-staff at the Capitol on the day of Johnson's funeral, which is Wednesday.
