Republican Congressman Don Young, Alaska’s lone representative in the U.S. House, has died. He was 88 years old.

Young died on Friday “while traveling home to Alaska” his office said via email.

The longest-serving member of Congress, Young had served as the representative for Alaska since 1973 when he won a special election held in the wake of the disappearance of incumbent Democrat Nick Begich.

Begich won the 1972 election despite having disappeared in a plane crash weeks earlier, but was declared dead later that year.

Young won the March 1973 special election to fill Begich’s seat and continued serving ever since. He became Dean of the House in 2017 following the retirement of former Rep. John Conyers.

A former teacher, Young had a hand in several major developments in Alaska, from the Trans-Alaska pipeline to the Magnuson Stevens Act.
