Orange County Constable Pct. 2 David Cagle passed away Sunday evening unexpectedly at age 57.

Cagle has been Constable since 2012.

Orange County Special Angels Rodeo in a Facebook post said, “The Orange County Special Angels Rodeo family is saddened by the passing of our friend, and supporter, Constable David Cagle. As Orange County Precinct 2 Constable, David and his deputies helped provide security each year for our rodeo and other events. Constable Cagle proudly served his community for many years, having worked with the Port Arthur Police Department, Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, and Orange County Sheriff’s Officer before being elected Constable. We are proud to have known him and are thankful for his support of our organization. You will be missed, sir!”

US Representative for Texas District 36 Rep. Brian Babin said, “Orange County PCT 2 Constable David Cagle passed away yesterday evening unexpectedly – he was a great friend to our office and never failed to go above and beyond for the residents of Orange County. Our deepest sympathy to his wife Kathy and his family.”

“Please join me in praying for Kathy and the family of David Cagle during this difficult time. Throughout his law enforcement career, David served Southeast Texas with honor and distinction. May God give you eternal rest, Constable Cagle,” Texas House of Representatives Dade Phelan wrote in a Facebook post.
