PRCA loses one of its ‘shining stars’

Carol Boyles, executive assistant to three Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association commissioners and one of the most beloved members of the PRCA family, died of cancer at her Colorado Springs home at 2 a.m. Sept. 3, surrounded by her family. She was 63.

Carol came to the PRCA on July 1, 2002, to work for then-commissioner Steve Hatchell and brought professionalism, warmth, humanity and humor to that office for eight years under Hatchell and successors Troy Ellerman and Karl Stressman.

“We have lost one of the shining stars of the PRCA,” Stressman said. “This is a very, very sad day for our entire staff.”



Prior to coming to the PRCA, Carol worked for three years as assistant to the Chief Executive Officer of the United States Olympic Committee in Colorado Springs. She had also served as office coordinator and legal secretary for the Colorado Springs law firms of Hogan & Hartson LLP and Sherman & Howard for many years.

Carol is survived by her daughter, Molly; brother Darrel (Bev) Bogart; sisters Sally Moon and Nancy (Jarvis) Barlow, and many other family members and friends.



A memorial service is planned for Sept. 19 at the ProRodeo Hall of Fame.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests any memorial contributions be made to the 1400s, an organization founded in 2008 on the tenets of Western heritage and with a commitment to provide funds to those in need. Contributions may be sent to the 1400s, 704 Burke Blvd., Devils Lake, ND 58301.
