August Christian Caboni

August 18, 1944 ~ August 31, 2019 (age 75)


August Christian “Chris” Caboni passed away unexpectedly on August 31, 2019, at the age of 75. He was born August 18, 1944, in New Orleans, LA, son of the late August A. “Gus” Caboni and the late Marie (Ferret) Caboni and brother to the late Gregory A. Caboni.
A life-long resident of New Orleans and a graduate of St. Edwards University, Chris was a refined gentleman who embodied the Catholic faith and lived it in every aspect of his life. He dedicated over forty-five years of his life to education, teaching at Holy Cross School and Brother Martin High School. He inspired his students to always be curious and explore the natural world, both in the classroom and out. Chris loved the outdoors and shared that with his family through numerous camping trips, nature hikes and simply storm-watching. He will also be remembered for his love of cooking and cheering on his New Orleans Saints.
Chris was a kind man with a generous spirit who always took care of others before himself. He had a light-hearted personality and was always making those around him laugh. His animated expressions and goofiness always kept his kids giggling….even through adulthood. His love for his family knew no bounds. He was known for traveling as often as he could to visit his children and grandchildren- whom he adored. He is survived by his best friend and lifelong spouse, Kathleen Caboni Quinn, his five children, Timothy Christian (Kacy) Caboni, Marissa Kristin (Lloyd) Bigford, Michael Grayson (Carleen) Caboni, Meredith Ariana (Matthew) Swank, and James Devin (Amy) Caboni-Quinn and his five grandchildren, Lloyd August Bigford, Chloe Bigford, Cailin Swank, Cassidy Swank and Scott Christian Caboni-Quinn.
