Anthony “Tony” Capodicci Obituary
SEASIDE, CA – Tony was born December 27, 1941 in New York City, New York, and died Friday, March 28, 2014 in Monterey. He was raised in the Bronx and entered the Army in 1964, being assigned to Fort Ord. Tony met and married his wife, Rosemarie, in 1965. They moved to New York for a short period of time and then came back to the Peninsula to start their family.
Tony was well-known on the Peninsula, working for Paisano Bread Company as a driver-salesman – where his nickname "The Bread Man" began – as well as Joseph George Liquor Distributors and, finally, Elyxir Distributing, from which he retired in 2002. His retirement did not last long, as he went to work for Hertz Rent a Car and for Santa Catalina School as the parking "guru". He loved spending time with his family, driving his old car, and fishing.
Tony is survived by his wife of 48 years, Rosemarie; his daughters, Traci (David) Butcher of Modesto and Melissa (Christian) Gibson of Pacific Grove; his sister, Joanne Fata of Las Vegas; his brother, Carmen (Pamela) Capodicci of Carlsbad; his brother-in-law, Salvatore (Vera) Giamona of Seaside and sister-in-law, Susan Giamona of Sutherlin, Oregon. He was predeceased by his mother and stepfather, Rose and Godfrey Fata; his father and stepmother, Carmen and Beatrice Capodicci; and two brothers, Louis Fata and Michael Capodicci. He is also survived by his grandson, David Morrow; granddaughters, Morgan and Mackenna Gibson; and great-granddaughters, Isabel, Ava, and Bailey Morrow; as well as several nieces and a nephew.
A celebration of Tony's life will be held at the Santa Catalina School's Rosary Chapel on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Santa Catalina School (1500 Mark Thomas Dr., Monterey, CA 93940) or to the donor's favorite charity.
