RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Republican state Rep. Dan Dryden has died.

The office of South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says Dryden died Tuesday. He was 72.

Dryden, a retired school business manager, had been a member of the state House since 2011 representing District 34, which encompasses a portion of Rapid City. He was the vice chair of the House Appropriations Committee.

Daugaard says Dryden was respected by his colleagues “for his steady, common-sense approach.” Daugaard says Dryden was an expert in school finance and was committed to “sound financial management.”

Dryden’s funeral is scheduled for Friday. Daugaard has ordered that flags be flown at half-staff from 8 a.m. until sunset that day.
