Brazos County, TX -- It is with extreme sadness that Brazos County officials confirm the passing of Precinct 2 Commissioner Sammy Catalena.  Commissioner Catalena passed away at his home today with his wife by his side.

Commissioner Catalena is a native of Brazos County.  He graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School in Bryan, and is a member of the Texas A&M University class of 1972.  He was a medic in the 9th Infantry Division, U.S. Army, and served his country in Vietnam.

Sammy’s involvement in the community has been life-long, including his service as County Commissioner since his election in 2011.  Familiar local businesses such as Catalena Hatters, the Texas Rose Boutique, and Sammy Catalena Rodeo and Livestock Company have all thrived under his ownership.  He and his wife are members of St. Joseph Catholic Church.

Sammy is survived by his wife of over 40 years, Carolyn, and three sons, Travis, Scott and Clay, along with much loved grandchildren, Kember, Hays and Clara,  and lifelong friends.
