MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today released a statement regarding the passing of Master Trooper Dan Stainbrook, 42, a 20-year veteran of the Wisconsin State Patrol, who passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Master Trooper Stainbrook was assigned to the North Central Region and worked primarily in Waushara County, according to a statement from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT).

“The state of Wisconsin lost a true public servant with the passing of Dan Stainbrook. 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,” said Gov. Evers. “Dan was a part of our team, and Evers and I extend our deepest condolences to Dan’s family and loved ones as well as his colleagues in the Wisconsin State Patrol and Department of Transportation during this incredibly challenging time.”

A forthcoming executive order will lower the U.S. and Wisconsin flags to honor Master Trooper Stainbrook when funeral arrangements have been made.
