Remembering Steve Corrigan, longtime organizer of the Brown County Fair

Midwest Farm

(WFRV) – The community is grieving the death of the President of the Brown County Fair Association.

Steve Corrigan died Friday, after a heart attack.

Corrigan worked for years with the board but told Local 5’s Millaine Wells that the 2020 edition was one of his proudest achievements.

In a year when many events were canceled, Corrigan and his team invested in putting on a safe fair experience. From social distancing to masks, and sanitizing stations – the event went off without a major health impact.

Corrigan was passionate about giving kids a place to showcase their animals – after most other fairs were canceled.

He opened up the 2020 Brown County Fair to surrounding counties and youth exhibitors from nine surrounding counties showed at the fair.

Corrigan took pride in every element of the fair, particularly the rodeo.

Family and friends may gather Friday, January 22, 2021 at St. Mary Catholic Church, 4805 Sportsman Dr. De Pere (Ledgeview) beginning at 8:30am until 11:15am, with the Mass of Christian Burial to follow at 11:30am, Rev. Michael Ingold officiating. The service will be livestreamed on Cotter Funeral and Cremation Care Facebook page.
