Subject: Remembering Dwight Riggs

A year ago the Archaeology Center announced that Old Pueblo Archaeology Center member Dwight Riggs had recently disappeared. It was known that Dwight liked to hike into the mountains behind his house northeast of Tucson, but after he went missing Pima County Search and Rescue had covered a 12 mile grid around his home looking for him, with no luck.

We regret to report that Dwight’s skeletal remains were found this past Sunday, January 24, near the Agua Caliente Park in northeastern Pima County.

Dwight was well-known in the Tucson area as an avocational archaeologist, an Arizona Site Steward, a member of several archaeological societies, and a person of inquiring mind who valued and supported cultural research and conservation. May he rest in peace and long be remembered.
