East Texas Constable Laid to Rest

Funeral services were held for R.T. Due. Due died last Saturday after a long fight with cancer.

He served as constable for Angelina County's Precinct 1 for 29 years. Due was so dedicated that even after choosing not to run again, he continued to serve as a deputy constable. Family and friends say he will be deeply missed.

"To sum up R.T.'s life and his contribution to this community. He was one of the most dedicated people that I've known in a long time. A dedicated law officer, a dedicated family man, and just a fine role model for young people," former Angelina County Judge Joe Berry said of his dear friend, Due.

Constable due was 83 years old.
