Wyoming Governor Proclaims Chris LeDoux Day

Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal has proclaimed July 30, 2005 as Chris LeDoux Day in the state. The date falls on the last day of Cheyenne Frontier Days in Cheyenne, Wyo. LeDoux died March 9 of liver cancer. Freudenthal issued the proclamation to coincide with a private memorial service attended by LeDoux’s family. “Chris LeDoux has meant a lot to Wyoming, from his earliest days of riding bareback to his later days of making music,” the governor said. “Cheyenne Frontier Days, when fans of both will gather, seems like an appropriate time to honor his memory.”
