Sergeant Kory Newbold (University of Utah Police)

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – It has been five days since a University of Utah Police Department sergeant passed away while on duty. Now, his family and friends are preparing to lay him to rest.

The University of Utah Police confirmed on October 13 that 59-year-old Kory Newbold died of a medical condition. Specifics on Newbold’s death have not been released.

“He was a beloved member of our team and had served the U community since 2014,” U of U Police said in a statement. “Our hearts and thoughts are with his family and friends during this difficult time.”

Monday morning, U of U Police shared details for Newbold’s funeral.

A funeral service is scheduled for Thursday, October 21, at the Institute of Religion at the U, 1780 E South Campus Drive. A viewing will be held from 9-10:45 a.m. and the service will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
