Raleigh, NC -- A former North Carolina legislator who died was perhaps best known at the General Assembly for proposing to his future wife from the House floor.

Covenant Funeral Service in Fredericksburg, Virginia on Monday confirmed funeral services took place over the weekend for Michael Gorman, who died December 2nd at age 62. An online obituary said Gorman died after a long fight against a rare blood disorder.
