Monday, March 27, 2017

Year for the PRCA 11 times. He has been inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame, the Canadian Hall of Fame, as well as the Hall of Fame for numerous rodeos, including Cheyenne, Pendleton, Pikes Peak, Fort Smith, Ellensburg, and Dodge City. He was inducted into the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and named ProRodeo Hall of Fame Legend of Rodeo. He has been the subject of numerous newspaper and magazine articles and at least 1 book.Vold was respected and admired for his sound business judgment, honesty, fairness, and his willingness to help virtually anyone. He was always calm and was known for his sage comments, his wit, his charm, and his unselfishness. He served on numerous boards and committees in professional rodeo and on the board of the US Bank in Pueblo, Colorado. He was a mentor and good friend to contestants, rodeo committees, stock contractors, announcers, clowns and bullfighters, pickup men, and others involved in rodeo. He was also highly regarded by people outside the rodeo business, including ranchers, bankers, and business people. In spite of his popularity with such a wide variety of people of all ages, including many well-known celebrities, Vold always remained modest and humble and enjoyed the phone calls he received every day, visiting about everything from politics to cattle prices, and enjoyed having people come to the ranch. Vold grew up next to an Indian reservation, and he had a deep affection and admiration for the Indians. He was extremely proud to have been named an honorary Chief of the Sarcee Indian tribe in 1964. Appropriately, he was called Chief Many Horses.Vold married Eileen Fessler of Ponoka, Alberta, in 1944. They had four children: Wayne, Dona, Doug and Darce. He married Karen Womack in 1972, and was blessed with her daughter, Nancy. They had one daughter together: Kirsten.
