Melissa, Christian and family:
I just learned of Tony's passing. I'm so very sorry for your loss. Your dad was such a nice man and I remember him (and your mom) fondly from our days on "the lane." He was so friendly and upbeat and I only wish I had known him better. I can't imagine what you must be feeling and going through - our thoughts and love are with you!! Shannon and Ray Griswold
Capper, as some of us called him here at Elyxir Dist. will be sorely missed by all who ever came in contact with him. You could be upset or mad about something and by the time you walked away from him you had a smile on your face! That's the kind of man he was! He was good to all and I will sure miss him.
Our deepest sympathy and prayers to Rosemarie and family. "Tony" was so special , loved life, loved his family and enjoyed working. Blessing and prayers from The Millers, Arvid J , Francine and Blair
Dear Rosemarie and Family -- We are very heartbroken with the loss of my brother Anthony. Even though we didn't grow up together I am so fortunate to have him be a part of my adult life. He was such a kind, wonderful and super funny man. We all loved and adored him. Our thoughts go out to all of you and we'll be in touch. God bless his soul and may he rest in peace. Love, Chip and Pam (Picture posted of Dad and brothers)
Rosemarie and Family, so very sorry for your loss. We will miss Tony's warm and caring heart and infectious smile. May God bring you comfort and peace. Nicholas, Margret, Hannah, & Natalie Chee
I'll remember Tony every time I go to an event at Santa Catalina. He did have a great smile every time and was always more than willing to be extra friendly. You will be missed Tony! My prayers for your family. We will meet again...
Tony you will be deeply missed, your contagious smile was always a joy to see. You always had a little gift for your girls when you came to see us, from doughnuts to tins of cookies. You were such a joy to see. May you Rest in Peace the neighborhood just isn't the same without you yelling and honking for the ol'man to come outside. You will be deeply missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of your family...

I was so very saddened to learn of Tonys passing. He has left a lasting legacy of laughter; no one could tease like Tony and I know that whenever I think of him I will smile. My love to his wonderful wife and my friend since high school, Rosemarie, and I hope it comforts you and your family to know how much he was loved.
My heart broke when I heard the news of Tony's passing. The Capodicci's and my family all belonged to the 10/10 RV Camping Club. Every month from when I was around 6 to 16 we would all set out caravan style and travel to fun campgrounds all over Northern California. I remember playing with Traci and Melissa years ago while on those fun camping trips. Our family loved Tony; for many years I really only knew him as "The Bread Man". Years passed and I hadn't seen Tony, his wife or kids in a long time. Then my husband and I bought a classic car and low and behold, there was Tony at all the car shows that we attended. It was a reunion of sorts and what a joy to see that his smile or personality hadn't faded at all over the years. I remember being up at the crack of dawn to get down to Cannery Row or Alvarado Street during Cherry's Jubilee. He would be there bright and early with a smile and a hug and a warm "Good Morning!" to everyone he saw. I have only good memories of Tony and am so glad our paths crossed again in my adult years to be able to share some more good times with such a great man. He loved his family and cared deeply for his friends and always had a positive spirit. That is how I will always remember him. My thoughts and prayers go out to Rosemarie, Traci, Melissa, and the rest of the family. I know that Tony is up in heaven sharing his smile and charm with everyone. God bless him, he will be missed.
Tony made me feel special. He made everyone feel special. He was a constant reminder that how you treat people is more important than social or economic status. I am going to miss his cheeky banter and the fact that he always protected my parking spot when there were events on campus. I know that he must be in heaven directing traffic and making angels laugh. My biggest condolences go to Rosemarie, his amazing bride - love to you. God bless.
Thank you for all of your hard work, your years of loyal service not only to Santa Catalina but to this country, and always having a warm smile on your face, Tony. Your soul, Mrs. Capodicci, and all of your families will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Tony was a class act and a pillar here at Santa Catalina. He always had a warm genuine smile and could always brighten your day with his fabulous wit and demeanor. He was sharp as a tack and remembered everyone. He always asked about my girls and they all loved him! Love talking to Tony and Rosemarie about their grandkids and how their faces lit up!
Santa Catalina will not be the same without him.
He spoke so lovingly about Rosemarie such true love!
We will miss you Tony though you will always be in our hearts.

Sorry for the loss of a great guy. We were friends for a very long time. My condolences to Rosemarie and the rest of the family. ~~ Eleanor Longo ~~
To Melissa one of my oldest dearest friends. 35 years of friendship we've shared from the sandbox to high school graduation and beyond. How blessed I was to grow up in such a great neighborhood surrounded by the love of people like th Capoddici's. Even as an adult when I'd see your dad he'd affectionately tell my coworkers at CHOMP "I couldn't get this one outta my house when she was little." How blessed you all are to have had him. I will always cherish all the memories we share. I pray GOD comforts you during this time. Love to the family!
Our condolences go out to Tony's family. He left us with lots of great memories and will truly be missed.
Joann & Skip Laycock
My sincere condolences to Tony's family & friends. Being parents of two Santa Catalina students I can honestly say Tony was a super star to everyone at the school. He always had a smile on his face & could always make our family smile when we saw him. He will truly be missed by our family.
I am so sorry that Tony passed away. He was a wonderful giving man. He always had a smile on his face. He was like a breath of fresh air. My sincere condolences to the family and friends. He will be truly missed.
Melissa Capoddici is one of my oldest and dearest friends. 35 years of friendship we've shared. To the Capodicci Family, growing up surrounded by the love of people like you shaped who I am today and I'm grateful. What a great neighborhood to live in and what a great family to be a part of. Even as and adult Mr. Capodicci would affectionately and proudly tell my coworkers at CHOMP "I couldn't get this one out of my house when she was growing up." I cherish all of those memories. I love you all and pray you are comforted by GOD's love. You were blessed to have such an amazing man in your lives. Melissa, since the sandbox we were friends. Kindergarten-high school graduation and beyond....... You are a great, great friend to me. LOVE TO YOU ALL.
