HAGERSTOWN -- When Larry Vaughn realized he wasn't going to live much longer, he returned to Hagerstown, the city where he battled, held office and made lasting connections.
Vaughn, a two-term Hagerstown city councilman and many-time candidate, died over the weekend. He was 66.
His brother, Wayne Vaughn, said Monday that the cause of Larry Vaughn's death still hadn't been established, but he'd been ill in recent years.
Penny Miner of Hagerstown, a friend who looked after Vaughn as he grew ill, said he had breathing problems and a heart condition.
For years, Vaughn watched over and fought for Hagerstown's West End.
His sister, Jean Shaff of Hilton Head Island, S.C., said neighbors came to rely on him and ask for his help even after he left office.
