Wagonmaster Wes Hatch had the honor of carrying the mortal remains of cowboy singer, actor, stuntman and Bandera icon, Rudy Robbins to his final resting place Sunday, Feb. 27.

The sign, "It Do," referred to Robbins' line in the movie, The Alamo, in which he played along with John Wayne.

A traditional riderless horse with reversed boots in the stirrups followed Hatch's wagon.

A mounted honor escort made up of members of the Bandera Posse, the Bandera Cattle Company Gunfighters, friends and family brought up the rear of the procession through the streets of Bandera.

Robbins was interred in the Bandera Cemetery.
