Another western pioneer passes on
By Kenneth R. Coppock, Calgary, Alta.
‘When Senator Dan Riley passed away in a Calgary hospital on April 27th in his 88th year, he left thousands of friends from every walk of life to mourn their loss. His departure was a genuine loss to Western Canada and to Western Canada’s Beef Cattle Industry. Since 1883 he had been a part of the West and a leading citizen in High River, Alberta. With Fulton Thompson, his brother-in-law in a partnership bound only by verbal agreements and understandings, he had developed a livery and implement business in town, and farming and ranching interests in the High River community.’
