Pat Bolan was an American lawyer and owner of the Denver Broncos. He served as CEO of the Broncos until July 2014, when he stepped down due to the progressive effects of Alzheimer’s disease. He passed away in 2019. Their estate plan was unique because of the family trust, which three trustees took over in 2014 with the sole purpose of determining the team’s next owner.
