Wisconsin State Patrol and other law enforcement agencies will join Master Trooper Dan Stainbrook’s family and friends on Nov. 30 as they honor the trooper who died earlier this month after a short battle with COVID-19.
Gov. Tony Evers has ordered flags across the state to fly at half-staff Tuesday to honor Wisconsin State Patrol Master Trooper Daniel Stainbrook, who lost his life in the line of duty due to complications from contracting COVID-19. Stainbrook was hospitalized on Oct. 27. He died on Nov. 15 at the age of 42.
“The state of Wisconsin lost a true public servant with the passing of Dan Stainbrook,” Evers said in a news release on Monday. “With two decades of dedicated service to his community and the state of Wisconsin, his loss is felt deeply by all those who knew and worked with him.”
A public funeral will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 30. Visitation is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Woodlands Church, 190 Hoover Ave. in Plover, with a service to follow at 1 p.m. Law enforcement honors will follow the service and include a helicopter flyover.
