Edmund H. Sadowski 1925-2017


Edmund H. Sadowski, 91, died on June 26, 2017 peacefully at his home with his beloved son Joe at his side. Ed was born on September 13, 1925 in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood to Pearl and Edmund J. Sadowski. He attended Bowen High School in 1943 and immediately upon graduation served as an aviation cadet in the U.S. Air Force during World War II.

Ed obtained his law degree from DePaul University, where he met and later married Marie (née Scribano). He was admitted to the U.S. Supreme Court bar in 1958, though never practiced before the court. He worked as an attorney for the Illinois Department of Housing and Urban Development, as president of Century Savings and Loan in Chicago, and as a real estate attorney. He reluctantly gave up his law practice when he was in his late 80s. Ed always had his toolbox at hand and was known for his ability to fix anything...whether you wanted it fixed or not! He completely rehabbed their home in the Beverly neighborhood and until his final days kept their Darien home, his children's homes, and the family cottage in good working order.

Ed was predeceased by his loving wife Marie; they were married for more than 50 years. He is survived by his devoted children Joe and Maria, son-in-law Rob Tanner, brother Robert J. Sadowski, sister-in-law Fran (the late Robert) Wall and her partner Larry Stine, sister- and brother-in-law Elaine and Jim Brunoldi, and nieces and nephews Kathy (Dickie), Bob, and Tom Wall, and Jim and Terri Brunoldi.
