Wyo. Sheriff’s Deputy Posthumously Honored

Deputy Bryan Gross and Gus, Converse County Sheriff’s Department

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A deputy who died trying to rescue a teenage girl from the North Platte River in 2011 will be honored with the Congressional Badge of Bravery.

The family of Converse County Deputy Bryan Gross will accept the award at a ceremony Feb. 19 at the Wyoming Capitol.

Gross was one of several rescuers who jumped into the swollen river to save the girl. Other rescuers used a canoe to steer the girl to the bank.

He was 29 and lived in Douglas. He was also named a Carnegie hero for his actions.

Rep. Cynthia Lummis said Tuesday that she would attend the ceremony along with Gov. Matt Mead, Sens. Mike Enzi and John Barrasso and U.S. District Attorney Kip Crofts. It will be open to the public.
