SPVFD Line of Duty Death-Captain Cory Barr


Date: July 12, 2018
Contact: Captain Becky Gruber
Phone: 608-837-5066 Ext. 5


The Sun Prairie Volunteer Fire Department has immense sadness over the passing of one of their own. Captain Cory Barr died in the line of duty on Tuesday July 10, 2018 while assisting during a response. Cory has been instrumental in the growth and integrity of not only this department but also the entire community. He was a beloved husband, father of 2, son, uncle, brother, friend, and amazing firefighter. Captain Barr’s kindness and contagious smile will always be remembered.

The Barr’s family Church has organized a Go Fund Me page for those who are looking to assist the family.

The amount of support from Sun Prairie and surrounding communities throughout the state has not gone unnoticed and it is greatly appreciated. Please respect the family and their privacy at this time.
