Somerset County High Sheriff Brad Cramer takes his oath of office on Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2019.

Somerset County flags, including one in front of the county courthouse, were lowered to half-staff Monday in a tribute to Sheriff Brad Cramer.

The Somerset County Commissioners ordered the move.

Cramer, the county’s sheriff for the past six years, died Saturday at a Pittsburgh hospital following cancer surgery, colleagues said Sunday.

He was a more than 40-year veteran of law enforcement in the Somerset area.
