According to a press release from the governor's office, Governor Steve Beshear announced today that a visitation and memorial for his chief of staff, Mike Haydon, will be held in the Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday afternoon. 

“After talking with Mike’s family, we felt it was appropriate to hold a memorial here in the Capitol, where Mike had spent so many years working for the people of our state,” said Gov. Beshear in the statement.  “This was truly his home away from home, and there are many people who will want to pay their respects to our good friend.  We miss him terribly already.”

Visitation will be held Wednesday, Aug, 15, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Rotunda, with a memorial service beginning at 3:30 p.m.

Another visitation will be held at Hale-Polin-Robinson Funeral Home at 221 East Main Street from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday. 

The funeral will be held at 10:30 a.m. Friday at St. Dominic Church, but because of the small size of the church, friends are encouraged to pay respects at the visitations if possible.
