He was elected as a Republican to the 78th United States Congress and to the ten succeeding Congresses and served from January 3, 1943 until his death from a cerebral hemorrhage in Washington, D.C. on September 15, 1963. He is interred in Arlington National Cemetery. Gavin voted in favor of the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1960,[2][3] as well as the 24th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.[4]
