Constable Brian Bachmann of Brazos County Constables Office – Precinct 1, Texas served as elected Constable for 20 months and had served in law enforcement for the past 20 years. He has been a volunteer with Torch Run since 2000 and was always willing to help with anything that he possibly could. In fact, Brian ran the Special Olympics Torch with one of our athletes to help open the 2012 Equestrian Summer Games back in May…and he was an active participant in the latest “Tip A Cop” fundraiser just three weeks ago, which brought in $10,643 over two days.

I met Brian at my first Tip-A-Cop working with SOTX in 2010 and he always had a smile on his face. 

During our Tip-A-Cops, he was always determined to be one of the top fundraisers of the night…and was always successful! He enjoyed every minute while working with our Athletes and devoted his time off-duty to support our organization by volunteering at local competitions and Fall Classic. 

Brian had such a passion for helping Special Olympics and always wanted to do more.  He had such a great impact on his community and will certainly be missed.

Brian Bachmann's funeral will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Reed Arena on the Texas A&M campus. A viewing is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday at Christ United Methodist Church off of Texas 6 in south College Station.
