Lane Frost’s wife, Kellie Kyle Frost, never remarried after his death. She continues to honor his legacy and has been involved in the rodeo community.
Lane Frost was a champion bull rider who tragically died in the arena at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo in 1989 after a successful ride on a bull named Takin’ Care of Business. The bull hit him with its horn, causing fatal injuries. At the time of his death, Lane was married to Kellie Kyle, a barrel racer he had met at a rodeo in 1985. They married in 1988, about a year and a half before his untimely passing.
After Lane’s death, Kellie was left to cope with the loss of her husband. She chose to keep his memory alive by staying connected to the rodeo world and the fans who admired him. Kellie has been a strong figure in preserving Lane’s legacy, including being involved in the making of the 1994 biographical film “8 Seconds,” which portrays Lane’s life and career. Luke Perry played Lane Frost, while Cynthia Geary portrayed Kellie.
Kellie has also been active in the Lane Frost Health and Rehabilitation Center in Hugo, Oklahoma, which was named in honor of her late husband. Despite the tragedy, she has found ways to keep Lane’s spirit alive, including sharing stories about him and supporting the sport they both loved. Her decision not to remarry is a personal one, and she has maintained a relatively private life, focusing on her family and the memory of Lane.
