Congressman Charlie Norwood Dies at 65

charlie norwoodRep. Charlie Norwood, who had been battling lung cancer, has died at home in Georgia at the age of 65.

Norwood had a lung transplant in 2004 due to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Unfortunately, the immune suppression drugs he took as a result of the transplant led to lung cancer in the non-transplanted lung. The cancer later spread to his liver.

"Charlie was a great member of this body and a friend to all," Rep. Nathan Deal, a fellow Georgia Republican, said on the House floor. Gov. Sonny Perdue ordered flags to be flown at half-staff at all Georgia state buildings.
