AQHA Immediate Past President Gene Graves died June 14. Gene had been battling pancreatic cancer for more than a year, which included his AQHA presidential term.

“Gene made the decision to continue with his presidency while undergoing treatment,” said AQHA Executive Vice President Don Treadway Jr. “He was an effective, thoughtful president, who never let illness get in the way of thinking about what was best for the American Quarter Horse and the American Quarter Horse Association. His death is a great loss for the industry, and on a personal note, I’ll miss him very much.”
