Patrick C. Daly


Again, death has removed a well-known and familiar figure from the community. Patrick C. Daly died at his residence on North Napoleon street, Valparaiso, Monday evening at 5 o'clock. Mr. Daly would have been fifty years of age, having been born in County Kerry, Ireland, on the 17th of March, 1842. When about seven years of age he came to this country with his parents, who settled in Michigan. There he resided most of the time until the year 1871, when he was married, and removed to this city. After removing to Valparaiso, Mr. Daly immediately went to work for the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne & Chicago Ry., of which corporation he remained a trusted and valued employe for many years, and until he formed a business partnership with his nephew, Charles Reagan, of Dowagiac, Mich., under the firm name of Daly & Reagan. Of this firm he was a member at the time of his death. In 1878, Mr. Daly was elected a member of the common council of the city from the Third Ward and was twice re-elected, serving for a period of six years. While a member of the council, he was recognized as one of its most efficient and hard-working members, one who was always on the alert when the interests of his constituents, were involved. After his retirement from the council, he was appointed as one of the city's commissioners, in which capacity he served with general satisfaction to the public, until his term expired a short time ago. Mr. Daley was a man of strong personal convictions, which were always backed by rigid integrity, so that his public as well as private affairs he never swerved from what he thought was right and duty. He was of a kind and generous nature and always ready to extend the hand of charity to his fellows, when he thought they were in need. He leaves surviving him a wife and one daughter, Maggie, a lovely little girl about 13 years of age, to whom he was tenderly devoted. His little family and their happiness and comfort were always uppermost in his thoughts. He also leaves surviving brothers and sisters, among them being a brother, William Daly, of chicago, and two sisters, Mrs. Reagan and Mrs. Paterson, of Dowagiac, Mich. The funeral services were held at St. Paul's, Wednesday at 9 o'clock. -- Valparaiso Star.
