| By Molly Robey
Stephen Konarski, a police sergeant at Loyola since 1993, passed away on Saturday, Jan. 2. He was 69.
“Steve was a dedicated colleague who supported the campus community,” said Adrian Black, director of public safety. “I’ve been the director of public safety at Loyola since 2018 and during this time, Sgt. Konarski was always one of our go-to sergeants. He was a jack of all trades. This loss will not only be felt throughout our department, but also among our Loyola community.”
Michael Kuhn, a police officer at Loyola, colleague, and friend of Konarski’s for 40 years, said he will remember Konarski for his friendly demeanor and humor.
“It's been an honor and a pleasure to have worked with Steve over the years,” said Kuhn, who has worked at Loyola for 13 years. “My sincerest thoughts go out to family, friends, and all those whose lives he has touched. He will be sorely missed.”
The Jesuit Community’s 5:15 p.m. Mass on Monday, Jan. 4, 2021, and the University’s 12:10 p.m. Mass on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021, will be offered for the repose of Steve Konarski’s soul and for his family.
