    So sorry to hear. We have great memories of our time together in Belle Harbor. Will never forget Cap insisting on fixing the crack in our holding tank for the head with his aquarium sealer. He was in the bilge working and I accidentally flushed sending him flying out with eyes watering from the fumes. He laughed so hard thinking it was the perfect joke. Cap if you can hear me, it really wasn't on purpose! Praying you find peace in all the memories Sandi.

    In 1988 Cap & SANDY moved into the boat slip next to ours in Racine, Wisconsin. Since that time, we've remained friends. My husband Rick became buddies and best friends with Cappy. Also, Rick and Cappy died one month apart. So now they're continuing their friendship in heaven.
    RIP Cappy, our many years together are great memories.
    Bless you Sandy.

    All your neighbors and friends in Tanglewood and beyond will miss that smiling face and the "GO BEARS" greeting. Through all your challenges you remained an inspiration. Your sweet wife, Sandi, took great care of you. Watch over all of us and send some of that enthusiasm to your beloved Bears.

    We are so sorry to learn of Cap's death. He was such a happy presence, especially the Bears games at Margarita Republic "Go Bears!" And we understand not only the other participants, but also he, enjoyed the pleasure of being together in his day program. We will miss his sunny countenance. Our condolences to you and your family.
