Sabatino, John R. - Virginia Beach  
John R. Sabatino Virginia Beach - John "Jack" Richard Sabatino, 69, passed away May 24, 2015. He was born in Youngstown, OH. He was the only son born to the late John M. Sabatino & Mrs. Helen Ford Sabatino. Jack served his country in the United States Navy, was a veteran of the Vietnam War, & retired after 21 years of service as a Chief Petty Officer. Having traveled the world many times over and stationed in multiple cities, he always held Youngstown in his heart as HOME. He often said being born in Youngstown, "gave you an edge in life". Jack was a former little league coach for several years, having coached both football & baseball for the Little Creek American & Bayside leagues. Many of his players would become lifelong friends. He was the old school coach standing on the fields with a cigarette in his mouth, yelling at the officials, & getting ejected from games. He was also a major Frank W. Cox Booster Club supporter in the early 1980s in support of his son's high school football team. In addition to his Navy career, Jack was a colorful entrepreneur who tried his hand at many business ventures. It was during these ventures that he met & took under his wing a melting pot of characters. He truly had friends from every walk of life. Jack loved an underdog, a broken wing, a lost cause, a risk. Jack's everlasting legacy will be his generosity. He was a mentor, father figure, best friend, & brother to many. He was the person you called if you ever found yourself in a bind or needed an ear to listen. He was the man you went to when you just needed someone to make you believe that everything would be ok. He was our Big Sabs, Mr. Sab, Big Shot, & Cowboy. He lived life large; a man with many mistakes but no regrets. A man who finally put his cell phone to rest just six days prior to passing. He loved the craps tables, pinochle, Pall Mall no filters, stuffed olives, Ohio, late night car rides, bocci, & Summer Nights on karaoke. Besides his mother, Mrs. Helen Ford Sabatino, he is survived by his son John Randy Sabatino; daughter, Jacquline Sabatino Domino & her husband, Alex; sisters, Georgiann Franklin (Bob), Mary Jane Schemetti (Don), and Ellen Walt (Rick); four grandchildren; & many beloved nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his first love, Nancy Neff Sabatino. Jack will be laid to rest in a private service with full military honors at the Hampton National Cemetery.www.grahamfuneralhome.com

Scott, Margaret S. - Chesapeake  
Margaret S. Scott Chesapeake - Margaret S. Scott, of Deep Creek, died May 22, 2015. Margaret was born in South Mills, NC, the daughter of the late William "Bill" Knowles and Hazel O'Kelly Knowles. Margaret was a retired painter, having owned and operated Deep Creek Painting Company for 20 years. She attended Deep Creek High School and was a member of Lake Drummond Baptist Church. Margaret was predeceased by her husband Robert C. "Bobby" Scott. She is survived by her daughters Susan Rogers and her husband Kevin of Chesapeake, Christine Wheatley and her husband Keith of Virginia Beach, and the most important person in her life, her granddaughter, Sydney Wheatley. Margaret is further survived by brothers and sisters including, Jean Pfaehler, Charlsie Knowles, Virginia Williams, Ray Knowles, James Knowles and Pete Knowles and his wife Katy, all of Chesapeake, William "Buddy" Knowles and wife Phyllis and John "Buck" Knowles of South Mills, NC; Betty Lewis and her husband John of Hughesville, MD; and Paul Knowles and his wife Dale, of Suffolk. Margaret is further survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. Margaret was a plain spoken, "country" woman who was devoted to her family. She loved simple things in life like eating a Hardee's biscuit, buying unnecessary from QVC, and watching videos of old school musicians like The Temptations on YouTube. She worked tirelessly as a younger woman, painting new homes for a local builder, proving she could handle a "man's job" and took great pride in her work. She was the kind of mother who worked all day in the summer heat and left work at day's end to stop at the mall and buy the last two tickets to The Police concert and surprise her daughters with them. She was the kind of grandmother who loved her girl Sydney as if she were her own child. The relationship shared by the two of them was loving, open, and genuine. They were not only family, they were best friends. Her smile will be missed, her laugh will be missed, her hugs and kisses will be missed, and her I love you's will be missed. The family would like to thank the doctors and nursing staff at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center, Beth Shalom Village in Virginia Beach, and to Dr. Paula Carr for their impeccable care of Margaret. Following her wishes, Margaret will be cremated and no public services will be held. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.altmeyer.com .
