I have known the Kapps' family since I was child at St. Mary's and have distinct memories of Charley swinging the crucible during church processions. Of course I knew he was extremely talented but had no idea of the breadth of his accomplishments. He was always warm and genuine. I am so sad for his loss and will be there to honor him on the 25th.
I have known Charley since at least the early 1970's. I knew he was extremely accomplished and yet always so modest and friendly. First and foremost however, I will always remember his awesome sense of humor, and secondly how sweet he was to always give me a ride home on his motorcycle after I baby sat his kids.
Charley's passing is a sad milestone in my life.
Charlie will be missed by all who knew him. He was a kind and gentle man who loved the world. To: Marcia and his family-: The greatest gift we can give to those who have left us is to live fully in their place."Bless you all.
He was an awesome, kind and happy person. His spirit will be missed.

We will miss Charley. He was kind,funny and a pleasure to be around. Our world is a little less bright without him in it. We will never forget him.
