Jim GladstoneHall of Fame cowboy and 1977 World Champion tie-down roper, Jim Gladstone, passed away on May 16. Born in 1942, the second generation cowboy (dad, Fred, was a two time Canadian champion) was also a gifted basketball player and later became a successful Tribal and criminal lawyer. Jim, who also won three Canadian tie-down roping honours, was the first Canadian to win a timed-event world title and remains the only cowboy from north of the 49th parallel to win a world championship in tie down roping.
All of us in the Canadian rodeo family extend condolences to Jim’s family and many friends.
* A cowboy farewell will be held at The Ranchman's in Calgary from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Friday, May 22. A Cowboy service will be held at the Cardston Agridome on Saturday, May 23 beginning at noon. (there will be a viewing prior to the funeral at 10-11:30 a.m. at the Legacy Funeral home in Cardston). Anyone with tributes or memories of Jim they would like to share is asked to call Jim's daughter, Stacey Schmidt, at (801) 347-0568.
