For the last two years of his life, Rep. C.W. “Bill” Young was in constant, searing pain, but put off thoughts of retirement because there was too much to do, Bev Young, his wife of 26 years, said in an interview Sunday night.
“It was horrible,” said Bev Young, “He just sucked it up. He refused to take drugs other than anti-inflammatories, because he didn’t want to affect his thinking. He said he had things to do.”
