COLORADO SPRINGS — Cowboy, actor, stockman, and philanthropist, Bob Norris has died.

Norris' statue graces the entry to the Norris-Penrose Event Center. He was one of the original Marlboro Men featured in ads shot on one of his ranches, but he didn't smoke.

Norris was also a big supporter of many projects in the Springs, including the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo.

Norris passed away this weekend at the age of 90.
