Friends and family are preparing to say goodbye to a friend.
Bobby Upchurch passed away on Sunday.
Upchurch was a Special Texas Ranger from TSCRA assigned to Brewster County and many other counties. Upchurch had also been a Chief Deputy for Reeves and Hudspeth County more than 27 years ago.
We've been told that a memorial service will be held in Alpine for his family and close friends.
At this point, we do not know when that service will be.
Upchurch was 71 years old.
