Madison County Judge A.J. “Tony” Leago has passed away, following a long battle with leukemia.
That was confirmed by the City of Madisonville. Leago had been in the position since 2019, and was up for reelection. Grimes County Judge Joe Fauth had been assisting Madison County in past months with some additional duties, while Leago was ill.
Leago was a business owner in the Houston area before his move to Madison County, and was the former Mayor of Midway.
Funeral services are pending.
