CASPER, Wyo. — A Casper Mountain Fire District volunteer firefighter died last week.

Firefighter Walt Kussy and his wife, Susy, died within 10 minutes of each other on Friday, Chief Lisa Evers reported in a social media post.

“Please keep the Kussy family and [your] Casper Mountain Fire Department in your thoughts and prayers,” the post read.

The couple was brought to the hospital by ambulance on July 27, where Walt Kussy was immediately placed in ICU.

The Kussys are survived by three sons: Brian, Bradley and Brandon.

A GoFundMe page set up for the family has raised more than $3,000 of its $20,000 goal.
