12/7/17 – Former Mayville Fire Chief Lynn Cundy was killed in a traffic crash Wednesday afternoon in Fond du Lac County. The accident happened just before 5pm in the Town of Oakfield. Authorities say 19-year-old William Bush of Horicon was driving a pickup truck that was pulling a trailer with farm equipment. Bush was on Towne Road and was attempting to cross Highway 151 when a southbound vehicle operated by Cundy clipped the rear of the farm equipment. Cundy was pronounced dead at the scene. His passenger, 73-year-old Dorothy McCrory of Fond du Lac, was taken to St. Agnes Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Bush was not injured. The crash is under investigation by the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office. A post on the Mayville Fire Department Facebook page says their hearts are heavy but they are thankful to have had him on the department. The post thanks Cundy for being a mentor and friend and says he will be truly missed.
