He may be gone, but he'll never be forgotten.

That was the message from El Paso County Commissioners Monday as they passed a resolution commemorating the one year anniversary of Dan Haggerty's death.

The former Precinct 4 commissioner passed away on July 28th of last year after a long battle with bladder cancer.

The 64 year-old served almost 19 years as a county commissioner, and from his colorful comments to his sense of humor, he left a lasting impression on most everyone who met him.

"There's no like person on the planet. He could say and do things nobody else could get away with. He could make anyone laugh and was someone who you instantly wanted to be known by and he made everyone feel like they were his best friend. I guess is the best way to put it," said Haggerty's nephew, Andrew Haggerty.

Haggerty never lost an election during his years in office.
