PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia Delegate Larry Border, who served in the Legislature for 20 years and was known for always helping others, has died.
Border, a Republican, died Wednesday after suffering a stroke, his daughter Heather Mullens told The Associated Press. Border was the minority chair of the Health and Human Resources Committee and served on the agriculture, finance and rules committees.
The pharmacist was first elected in 1990 and represented the 9th District, which covers Wirt County and portions of Wood County. His daughter says he sometimes bought prescription drugs for people who couldn't afford them and was always willing to listen to both sides of an argument before making a judgment.
Border was born in Parkersburg. He attended the West Virginia University School of Pharmacy.
