“We were blessed to experience Mr. Caboni’s humility, peace, and patience every day as a part of our faculty,” Brother Martin said in a statement on its website.

“In recent years, Mr. Caboni did much of his work behind the scenes, setting up and breaking down science labs in the Meyer building so that our teachers could teach and our students could learn without having to worry about the details. Mr. Caboni took care of the details, and his love for Brother Martin was undeniable.”

Chris Caboni was recently a 9th-grade physical science teacher, according to Brother Martin’s statement.
