    James Stanley “Coach” Suba

    James Stanley “Coach” Suba passed away April 8, 2011 at the age of 86 years. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Patricia Reese Suba; children Lea Suba Kimbrell (Jim), Tricia Suba Renfro (Ray), Strech Suba (Lou), and Jo Lyn Suba Iverson (widow of Logan); grandchildren Denver Renfro (Kris), Kyle Kimbrell, Matthew Renfro, Grady Kimbrell, DJ and Sarah Iverson; and great-granddaughters Katherine and Norah Renfro; sister, Gloria Wakeland (Billy) and nieces and nephews.
    His greatest loves on this earth were his family, baseball and the Marine Corp. He loved to hunt, fish and spend time in God’s great outdoors. He taught and coached countless young people over the years in the classroom, on a field or in a gym, behind the wheel of a driver’s education car, in the backyard or wherever he sat down. Coach taught in several school districts and retired from Sheldon ISD in 1985. He played college and semi-pro baseball and pitched batting practice for 13 years for the Colt 45s and the Houston Astros. He was a fixture at Colt 45 stadium, the Astrodome and Minute Maid Park from 1964 through the 2008 season.
    Coach will be remembered by a host of friends for his generosity and ability to turn adversity into a learning experience.
    The family wants to express their deep gratitude and appreciation to the staff at Wisteria Place.
    In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the charity of your choice.
    The family will have a viewing at Elmwood Funeral Home on Monday, April 11, from 6-8 pm. There will be a private burial on Tuesday, April 12.
    Online condolences and memories may be shared with the family through the obituary link at http://www.elmwoodfuneral.com <http://www.elmwoodfuneral.com>

    Welcome Michael Kane to the Central campus 

    San Jacinto College is pleased to welcome Michael F. Kane, the newest technical education dean at the Central campus.

    As dean of business and technology, Kane will oversee such areas as the real estate program, information technology, business management, and interior design. He is one of two technical education deans; Dr. Steven Horton serves as dean of industrial and applied technology.

    Kane is originally from upstate New York and holds a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from the University of Tulsa, a Master of Arts in Criminal Justice and Police Administration from Sam Houston State University, and a Master of Education in Administration and Supervision from the University of Houston in Victoria.

    He has more than 34 years experience in the criminal justice system, in positions as either a practitioner or educator; 26 years as a supervisor/administrator over criminal justice faculty at Coastal Bend College; and law enforcement experience with Harris County Sheriff’s office, Rice University and Metropolitan Transit Authority.

    Kane has been recognized by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and Coastal Bend College. He is a licensed peace officer for the State of Texas and a Texas Peace Officer Certified instructor.

    “I hope to bring my knowledge and experience in education to San Jacinto College,” said Kane. “I also hope to gain experience at a larger district and bring a different viewpoint of administering post secondary education.”
