Larry Mahan Obituary, Death, Larry Mahan has passed away


Larry Mahan Obituary, Death – Larry Mahan, a famed cowboy who died on Sunday, May 7, in his Valley View, Texas, home with family, will be memorialized in Fort Worth, Texas. Aged 79. Justin McKee will host the service at Cowtown Coliseum in the Fort Worth Stockyards on Tuesday, May 16, at 6 p.m. (doors open at 5). Public seating is available. Friends, family, World Champion rodeo athletes, PBR World Finals qualifiers, and NFR qualifiers should assemble at The Barn Meeting Hall at The Drover Hotel at 5 p.m. to be led to floor seats.
Mahan was called “the first rock star of rodeo” for his accomplishments as a saddle bronc rider, bareback rider, and bull rider, winning six All-Around World Championships (five in a row from 1966-70) and two bull riding World Championships in the PRCA. He was a rare modern authentic American cowboy. He promoted Western culture more than rodeoing. The first ProRodeo Hall of Fame class included Mahan in 1979. He was inducted into the PBR Ring of Honour and received the Ty Murray Top Hand Award for his lasting contributions to rodeo. He is in every major Western hall of fame.
Larry Mahan was a humble, generous, and kind cowboy despite his accomplishments in and out of the ring. The memorial event will honour a guy who inspired and affected many people and will continue to do so. PBR thanks the American Paint Horse Association for rearranging Cowgirl Gathering events to make Cowtown Coliseum available for this memorial service. The Cowboy Channel will host a reception at Tannehill’s Tavern in the Stockyards for friends, family, World Champion rodeo contestants, PBR World Finals qualifiers, and NFR qualifiers after the funeral ceremony, featuring Annie Bosko.
