Update: Family Reacts To Loss Of Bryce Dion

On a show like COPS, life is city to city. While some wouldn't like that lifestyle, Audio Supervisor Bryce Dion loved it.

"What's better than a person who is always up beat and happy. I wish I had more of him in me," said Trevor Dion, Bryce's older brother.

As an older brother usually would, "I influenced everything he did, or smacked him around."

He smiles during the interview, but losing Bryce on Tuesday brings an unbearable sadness.

Trevor said he and Bryce shared a love for football. "Watching football. He's a Dolphins fan, I am a 49ers fan. Every time the 49ers whoop on them I call him, every time Miami gets lucky and whoops the 49ers, I don't take the call."

To say Bryce will be missed doesn't even begin to cover it.

"He was my advice guy, he is six years younger than me, but he was sixty years smarter than me. I love talking to him, I could ask him anything. He had perpetual happiness, I am going to end up with perpetual sadness."

Trevor said Bryce just had a way for reaching people, "He gets Christmas cards from cops in Texas, Florida, L.A., Nevada. I mean he has been invited to their kids graduations, he makes an impression on everybody, made an impression on everyone he meets."

Here in Omaha for just a short while, Trevor and his father met those who worked closest with Bryce.

"That's why this has been incredible, to meet all his friends from COPS and stuff, just unreal, unreal. They are very nice people and they love him. They love him."

A love that will never die. "He's a part of me, he is my brother," said Trevor.

Trevor hopes people honor Bryce by being more like him, "That whole be happy thing, he walked it, talked it and lived it ya know."

Dion, 38, was shot and killed after police were called to a robbery at Wendy's near 43rd & Dodge on Tuesday night. He was there with Omaha Police, as part of the film crew for COPS.
