We regret to pass on that the Grant County and Ulysses community (west of Wichita) is mourning the Line of Duty death of a longtime Firefighter who died after a 3 week battle against COVID-19. FF/EMT Rob Berry began service on the frontlines for Grant County in 1991. Berry’s service in Grant County included 30 years on EMS as an EMT and 20 on the fire department.
FF/EMT Berry died from COVID-19 complications at the age of 69. He leaves behind his wife and two children. Before FF Berry died he told his family to get vaccinated. The dedicated Firefighter/EMT had not done so, according to Grant County Fire Chief John Crosby
