Cheyenne police have identified the man ran over and killed at Frontier Park Tuesday morning as 65-year-old Albert Shoreman of Texas.

Public Information Officer Alex Farkas says Shoreman was getting out of the bed of a pickup that had slowed to a stop in traffic near Gate V12 when he lost his footing and fell, and the pickup driver pulled ahead with traffic and ran him over.

Shoreman was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Farkas says the pickup driver, who police are not identifying at this time, remained on scene to assist officers with their investigation.

Cheyenne Frontier Days posted the following statement on its Facebook page Wednesday morning:

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Albert “Larry” Shoreman. He was born 2-21-1956, and grew up in a typical Midwestern family northeast of Chicago. He is described by his sister as being a very protective and loyal little brother. Larry played sports in high school in Waukegan, Illinois. After school he enlisted in the Marine Corps as a payroll clerk where he served two enlistments. He worked with the Janousek family for 35 years, and was a most trusted friend and brother. He was an avid Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs fan. To say the least the loss of Larry has been devastating to us all. He leaves behind his sister Jackie along with a host of people who loved him and will miss him dearly.

LOOK: VIntage Postcards Showing-Off Cheyenne Frontier Days Through the Years

Postcards have been a thing since the mid-1800s. Sending pictures and short messages on card-stock paper to friends and families really took off in the first half of the 20th century. While not quite as popular today, they still exist, and collecting postcards even has a special name, Deltiology.

Postcards were made for a lot of things, like vacation destinations and events. Cheyenne Frontier Days was the source of many. On the auction site eBay we found a lot of vintage postcards with fascinating pictures of Cheyenne and the Daddy of 'Em All.
