The WPRA sends their condolences to the family of Harry Vold as the rodeo world says goodbye to another legend in the sport.

ProRodeo Hall of Fame stock contractor Vold passed away March 13 at the age of 93. Known as the "Duke of the Chutes" he passed away in his sleep at his home in Avondale, Colo.

"My dad enjoyed rodeo more than anyone I know," Kirsten Vold, Harry's daughter told ProRodeo.com. "The PRCA meant a lot to him. He dedicated his life to the sport of rodeo and he believed in everything those four letters (PRCA) stood for. He passed away in his sleep like every good cowboy should."

A memorial service will take place at 1 p.m. (MT) March 20 at the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, Colo.
