Sam Saleme, age 85 of Beaumont, Texas died Friday, January 18, 2013 at Harbor Hospice in Beaumont.

He was born on August 25, 1927 in Beaumont to Catherine Palermo Saleme and Thomas Saleme.

A native and lifelong resident of Beaumont, Sam enlisted in the Navy at the age of sixteen and defended his country in the Pacific Theater during World War II. He also served during the Korean War.

After his two tours of duty in the Navy, he married JoAnn Canizaro. He also became the small business owner of Sam Saleme's Barber Shop for thirty years. He loved his family, his children and his country. He coached his West End Little League teams to four championship games and two city championships. He will be greatly missed, not only for his presence, but how he stood for the things he loved: God, family and country.

Survivors include his wife of fifty-eight years, JoAnn Saleme, his sons, Sam J. Saleme, Jr. and Gregory M. Saleme and grandson, Gregory M. Saleme II, all of Beaumont.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 2pm Tuesday at Saint Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church, 6825 Gladys Avenue, Beaumont.

A graveside service will be held at Houston National Cemetery, Houston at a later date.
