Statement from E. Stanley Kroenke, Owner KSE, on Pat Bowlen's Passing

by Kroenke Sports & Entertainment

Pat Bowlen was much more than a great sports team owner. He was a great man and friend. He cared deeply about his community, always putting his team and his fans first.  

Pat fostered a special bond with his players, encouraging them to be leaders not only on the field but also to be leaders in their community and in business. 

On behalf of my family and Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, we wish the Bowlen family and the entire Denver Broncos organization comfort and solace in this difficult time. Mr. Bowlen will be missed, but his legacy and impact in Colorado and the NFL will continue for generations.

- E. Stanley Kroenke, Owner of Los Angeles Rams and Kroenke Sports & Entertainment
