Bryan Phillip Gross

Deputy Sheriff Bryan Gross drowned in the North Platte River while attempting to save a teenage girl who had jumped into the river after fighting with her boyfriend.

Deputy Gross had responded to the scene and entered the water, which was swollen due to heavy snowmelt. The girl was pulled from the water by bystanders but Deputy Gross was swept away. His body was found four days later, approximately 1/2 mile from where he entered the river.

I was 17 when you passed away. My first tattoo was dedicated to you. I have carried you with me since this day 6 horrible years ago. I remember the snap my dad went through, that every CCSO and DPD officer went through. All of our families went through. We all love you and remember you. You're one of the reasons I joined Casper PD. Thank you for everything you have done. "Blessed be the peace makers, for they shall be called the children of God."
