In 20 years in law enforcement, Constable Brian Bachmann touched a lot of people's lives.
Fellow officers said Bachmann loved his job, but he did hate one thing, and that was serving evictions.
Bachmann was shot and killed last Monday doing that very thing.
At a funeral service on the Texas A&M University campus today, friends said Bachmann would go out of his way to assist families being evicted by helping them find a place to live, that's why so many people loved him.
"He was an outgoing person that was very interested in law enforcement," said Sheriff Don Sowell of Grimes County.
Sheriffs, deputies and other agencies from all over the state made the trip to show respect to their fallen brother, including an honor guard from the Austin Police Department.
"We just believe it's important for us to stand by our family in law enforcement and be here for support for a time and need like today," said one deputy of Lubbock County Sheriff's Department.
Denise Clark of Travis County Sheriffs said, "Whether you know the person or not, it's just tough."
Others said Bachmann was at the top of his class and training through out his career.
Bachmann had been with the Brazos County Sheriff's Office since 1993. He was serving his first term as constable, and many expected him to one day be sheriff of Brazos County.Bachmann leaves behind a wife, four kids and a grandson.
