Royce Crosby

We received sad news from former director Debby Letham that long-time Appaloosa breeder Royce Crosby of Lawton, Oklahoma, died today. According to the source we found, a memorial service will be held Sunday May 16, 2010, 3:00 PM at Whinery-Huddleston Chapel in Lawton. We’ll share more details soon.

Upon checking the file, we can tell you that Royce has been an ApHC member since 1962 and was the proud owner of Prince Rocky, a son of Prince Plaudit. Rocky sired 22 point-earning halter horses, 3 bronze medallion winners and 7 ROM earners…among other highlights.

    I knew Royce as well, and have always appreciated his contributions to the breed. His show resume dates back to the early 1960s when he showed Dusty Warrior for Dr. JoAnn Dillard of Ringling, Oklahoma.
