Anthony J. Sabatino Obituary
November 15, 1950 - May 22, 2017 Anthony "Tony" Joseph Sabatino, 66, died Monday, May 22, 2017, in Los Angeles, CA. He was born on November 15, 1950, in Chicago, Illinois, to Ruth (Stocks) and Anthony Sabatino. Spending his childhood in Chicago, Tony then went on to earn his Bachelor of Science in Education and Master's degree in Educational Administration both at Northern Illinois University. After beginning his career as an educator in several Catholic elementary and public schools in Illinois, Tony moved his family to Southern California in 1987. There, he flourished in Catholic school administration, including 11 years as Associate Principal at St. Augustine High School in San Diego and eight years as Headmaster of Villanova Preparatory School in Ojai. He earned his Doctorate in Education in 2010 from Cal Lutheran University. That same year, he joined the faculty at Loyola Marymount University as a Clinical Associate Professor of Educational Leadership and Director of Catholic School Leadership Programs. His commitment to Catholic educational organizations was unequivocal; he served on many Catholic school boards and his leadership, consultation, and outreach expertise benefited local and national Catholic organizations. Tony loved his family above all else, and he is survived by his wife Connie (Steward), whom he married in Rockford, Illinois, on November 20, 1976; a daughter, Lisa Lange (and son-in-law Eric), two sons, Peter (and daughter-in-law Sara), and Nick (and daughter-in-law Michelle), and three beautiful grandchildren, Maisie, Benjamin, and Luisa. He is also survived by his sister Janis Collins and her family, of Westport, Connecticut. He will be greatly missed by all who loved him and whose lives he touched. Memorial services will be held at Sacred Heart Chapel on the Loyola Marymount University Campus on Tuesday, May 30, at 11:00am. There will be visiting hours before the service, at the same location, from 9:45-10:30am. Burial will be private. Expressions of sympathy may take the form of donations to the Anthony J. Sabatino Scholarship in Catholic School Leadership at Loyola Marymount University. Donations can be sent care of Alma Vorst, 1 LMU Drive, Suite 2800, Los Angeles, CA 90045.
