SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. -- Volunteer firefighter, husband and father Cory Barr was tragically killed in an explosion last week in Sun Prairie.

On Tuesday, the Culver's in Sun Prairie will host 'Cory Barr Family Share Day.' From 10:00 A.M. to midnight. 50% of the sales will go to the family. 

Barr is being called a hero after responding immediately to the call from the fire station to come in and assist.

Governor Scott Walker said "It is a tragedy because of his death, but he is without a doubt a hero. There's no doubt looking at that site had they not evacuated those people...the tragedy of one would have been far greater."

The 34-year-old Barr was helping evacuate civilians and workers at the time of the explosion. He leaves behind a wife and three one-year-old daughters.
