Memorial service set for former Spokane Valley mayor

A public memorial service for former Spokane Valley mayor Rich Munson will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at CenterPlace, 2426 N. Discovery Place, according to an email from city councilman Bill Gothmann. Munson, 68, died on New Year's Day from complications of leukemia.

Current mayor Tom Towey announced today that the City of Spokane Valley will fly its flags at half staff Tuesday through Sunday in Munson's honor. Towey will read a proclamation declaring the observance at Tuesday's city council meeting.

Towey said he had no idea Munson was so ill. "Rich was a visionary," he said. "We need more visionaries like him in our community."
