A press release stated that Maser succumbed to his injuries after several deputies and emergency personnel from the Idaho Falls Fire Department attempted life-saving measures from the scene to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.
Maser started with the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office in April of 2019. He was known as a hard-working member of the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office. Full details on funeral arrangements are pending. However, tentative plans for a funeral are scheduled for Friday, May 22nd, in the Idaho Falls area.
Sheriff Paul Wilde, and the entire Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office, said in a press release that they are “humbled at the outpouring of support for the Maser family and our deputies.”
