One of the most legendary stock contractors in the world of rodeo, Roy Honeycutt, passed away at the age of 82. Roy was the owner of Honeycutt Rodeo Co. and his bucking bulls and bucking horses have been featured at the National Finals Rodeo for several years. Always sad to see one of the stock contractors pass.
