Bryan House Fire Victims Being Remembered By Aggie Friends

BRYAN, Texas News 3 is continuing to learn more about Noel Devin, the 12th Man Foundation employee whose body police believe was found with her dad in the rubble of a house fire Monday morning.

Noel Devin was well known and respected within the Texas A&M Community as a worker at the 12th Man Foundation Ticket Office.

She's also an Aggie, Class of 2004.

Friends tell us they are still devastated and shocked by news of her death.

Noel Devin touched many people who call Aggieland home.

Bryan Police believe the 32-year-old and her father Thomas are the remains found in her home on Vinewood Drive Monday Morning.

Thomas "Mac" Devin earned a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A&M in 1989.

Noel worked for the 12th Man Foundation's Ticket office.

She appeared in a video about the new seating arrangement as part of the Kyle Field redevelopment.

"Noel was such a loving and kind person. She had a great heart and was so helpful," said Kristen Gallegos, who knew Noel for more than six years.

She also worked with her in the ticket office at Texas A&M.

She spoke to us via Skype from the Dallas area.

"She was in a position to work with so many student workers and she was always so helpful and so kind. Same thing with her dad. Her dad was the kind of person that you could call at anytime if you needed anything. So I think it's only fitting that he and Noel were together if she was in need," she said.

Friends say Noel never got over the death of her brother Nickless who was killed in a car accident in Fort Worth in 2010.

Tuesday afternoon Bryan Firefighters were continuing to investigate the arson fire. The details surrounding their deaths still being looked into.

"It's sad to think that when their names are announced at Muster this year I will be one who gets to say 'here' in honor of them. I'm so thankful for the impact that Noel, her dad, and the rest of the family had on my life. They are such great people and it was a huge loss," said Gallegos.

The family has requested privacy during this difficult time.

Officials with Aggie Athletics and the 12th Man Foundation tell us it's been a very difficult day and were not available for on camera interviews for this story Tuesday.
