D. ACKLEY Answers Last Call. Died Sunday at Glenwood Sanitarium Following an Operation. The news of the death of Solon D. ACKLEY, Sheriff of Eagle county, was received last Sunday morning with great sorrow all over the county, and with surprise to most citizens of the county, very few of whom realized that the sheriff's condition was serious.
Mr, ACKLEY had gone to the Sanitarium in Glenwood a week before, where it was found that an operation would be necessary at once, as the examining surgeons found a very alarming condition existing in his stomach and bowels. The operation was performed, and he rallied from the effects of it in good shape, and every hope was entertained for his speedy recovery. He continued to improve all last week, and his wife, who was at his bedside, was contemplating returning to her home in Red Cliff, when last Saturday morning he passed into a comatose state and began to rapidly fail, never regaining consciousness, the end coming at 3 o'clock Sunday morning.

Solon ACKLEY grew from small boyhood to manhood in Red Cliff, where he made his home all of his life with the exception of a short period when, while in the Forest Service, he was ranger on the Eagle station and made Eagle his home during that time. He was a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, having been a fireman on the Denver & Rio Grande railroad for a number of years, working out of Minturn. He was also a member of the Elks lodge. He entered the Forest Service and was stationed at Red Cliff for a time until transferred to the Eagle station. In the spring of 1916 he resigned from the government service, and that fall was nominated on the Republican ticket for sheriff of the county. He was elected by a big majority, and has twice since been reelected, serving on his tired term in that office when he died. He was conscientious officer, doing his duty as he saw it, was level headed and cool in the performance of those duties, and it will be a long time before Eagle county has a better peace officer than was Solon ACKLEY. He was a most affectionate and dutiful husband and father being devoted beyond the ordinary to his family.

He is survived by his widow and six children: two brothers, Frank and Garfield and his father, all of whom were unable to attend the funeral; two sisters, Mrs. Jack MCARHUR of Red Cliff, and one living in Kansas, both of whom were present at the funeral.

The funeral services were held in Red Cliff Wednesday morning from the Catholic church, and the body was laid beside that of his mother in Evergreen cemetery at Red Cliff. The funeral was attended by a large concourse of sorrowing friends, many from distant parts of the county, all of whom sincerely regret his untimely passing. The court house in Eagle was closed for business Wednesday out of respect for the deceased Solon died on 21 December 1922 at the age of 49 in Eagle, Eagle, Colorado, United States.40,51,1004,1850 Eileen Patricia Ackley has death as 30 Apr 1922 in Leadville Colorado
