ABILENE, Texas - Friends, family and fellow officers said goodbye to Clyde police officer Brian Campbell Wednesday -- his funeral was held at the Texas State Veterans cemetery in Abilene.
"He could go out and do his job and not make enemies," said Clyde Police Officer Chris Raish. "He was a great person on the outside and a great person on the inside."
Raish was trained by Campbell, and he was one of eight men who carried him to his final resting place.
"We had that brother bond," Raish said.
During his time at the Clyde Police Department, Campbell was a K-9 officer. His old partner, Gracie, showed up for her final goodbye.
"[Campbell] was always there showing himself to the community and he was always there to promote things for the community," Raish said.
Officers with numerous police departments from around the Big Country attended Campbell's funeral.
The family asked that any donations made in Brian's memory go to the Clyde Police Department or a charity of choice.
