Kavulich dies following surgery complications, age 62

Rep. Sid Michaels Kavulich (D-Lackawanna) passed away Tuesday from complications from heart surgery. He had been hospitalized earlier this month.

Lawmakers remembered him as someone who never let Harrisburg change a welcoming personality much, and for pristine health before the surgery.

His passing is also the second in as many days, third in the last three months, and fourth of the session to afflict the Democratic caucus.
