Rodeo Has Lost a Legend in Lecile Harris

In Colorado we love rodeo. So chances are, if you love going to rodeos, you'd seen the great Lecile Harris in action.

Sadly, the legendary rodeo clown, who spent decades performing has died. Harris, 83, died in his sleep after the show Wednesday night in Jackson, Mississippi.

Harris originally gained popularity after starring in the television show “Hee Haw” as well as roles in other TV shows and movies. He was inducted into the Mississippi Rodeo Hall of Fame, the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame and won the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association award for Clown of the Year five times.

He performed in Colorado as recently as last August at the Larimer County Fair and Rodeo in Loveland.

Funeral plans weren't immediately announced.
