The long-time voice of the Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby has passed away Tuesday at the age of 88.

Joe Carbury passed away at the Colonel Belcher Hospital after suffering a stroke two weeks ago, according to Keith Marrington, former Director of Rodeo and Chuckwagons for the Calgary Stampede.

The Calgary Flames took the time to salute Carbury this morning, and mourn the passing of the iconic voice. 

Carbury retired in 2008 after 45 years of calling the chuckwagon races at the Calgary Stampede. He was inducted into the Alberta Sport Hall Of Fame in 2003.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Carbury's family and friends.
