Mississippi state Rep. Charles Young was laid to rest Wednesday in Meridian.
A funeral service was held at his home church, Newell Chapel CME Church.
Hundreds of people packed the building to bid farewell to Young, who died Apr. 29. He had served District 82 since taking office in 1980.
Following the service, Young's body was taken by horse-drawn carriage to Sunset Memorial gardens for burial.
A memorial service was held Monday at the MSU Riley Center to salute Young and recognize his accomplishments in the political arena and business.
