Joseph L. Saladino Obituary

Joseph L. Saladino

Of Arlington Heights, Illinois


Joseph L. Saladino passed away on June 6, 2024 in Arlington Heights, Illinois. He was born on February 5, 1937 in Springfield, Illinois. After attending Marquette University, Joe landed a job with United Airlines in the Chicago suburbs where he and his wife of 66 years, Antoinette “Toni” Saladino, raised four children. After retiring in 2000, Joe spent the next 24 years as a devoted husband, father and grandfather.


Joe and Toni have traveled the world together, often with their children in tow. Hawaii was his favorite destination, having traveled there too many times to count. Joe also loved bowling, and participated in leagues with his co-workers, as well as his wife and children. Joe was an avid sports fan. He particularly enjoyed baseball and spent years coaching his sons’ little league teams. Joe and Toni were fixtures at sporting events and activities for all of their children and even their grandchildren, traveling around the country to do so. One of his favorite things to do was to travel to Arizona to watch the Cubs in spring training. In his latter years, Joe loved to just be home with his family celebrating birthdays, holidays and just hanging out—which usually involved enjoying a cake and a big bowl of ice cream.


He is survived by his wife, Toni; his children Gail Biagini, Jay (Cindy) Saladino, Tom (Diane) Saladino, Theresa (Dirk) Calvert; his grandchildren Tony (Amanda) Saladino, Ryan (Katie) Saladino, Domenic Biagini, Quinn Calvert, Jenny (Austin) Campbell, Gina (Beau) Davis, Kyle Calvert and Nick Biagini; his great-grandchildren Mason, Lucas and Emmett Saladino and Olivia and Kenna Robison; and his siblings Franny Echoff, Mary Lou (Joe) Schroeder, Dottie (Jim) Perkins and Kathy (Sam) Wheeler. He is preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Dorothy Saladino.
