Sherry Peace with Wheeler and Woodlief Funeral Home in Rocky Mount said Valentine, of Nashville, died Tuesday.

The Democrat served in the House from 1983 to 1995, representing what was then the 2nd Congressional District. It included parts of the Raleigh-Durham area.

Valentine also was in the North Carolina House from 1955 to 1960.

Valentine served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. He graduated from the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1948 and graduated from law school at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 1952.

North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper says he grew up two blocks away from the Valentines. He says Valentine loved Nash County and North Carolina.
