MANY, Gerald Allen  
MANY, Gerald Allen "Jerry" In Memoriam Longtime Eastern Washing- ton horseman, Jerry Many, 69, passed away on October 26, 2014, after a long and courageous battle with Parkinson's disease. He was born on March 8, 1945, in Yakima to Gerald "Pete" and Patricia Many and graduated from Shadle Park High in 1963. At an early age Jerry discovered the great outdoors, which led to his lifelong passions of hunting and fishing and helped to create numerous friendships and an encyclopedia of stories which were nothing short of legendary. Jerry never missed an opening day of hunting or fishing season for over 50 years. He spent many a day in the wheat draws outside of Colfax or fishing with his buddies at Loon Lake. After discovering Thoroughbreds, he and his wife Carol raced at Playfair, Yakima Meadows and Longacres. Their many horses won the Belle Roberts Handicap, Seafair Queen Stakes and Washington Oaks under the stable name of One to Many Stables and the Friendship Stables. The Manys also bred I'maknightschoice, who won the All West Fillies Futurity at Playfair in 1994. Jerry became involved with Thoroughbreds at every level, including being part of the HBPA at Playfair. His wife, Carol, passed in 1998. Jerry worked for many years as the manufacturer's representative for Many Gift Ideas. He was known for his ability to make those around him laugh and enjoy themselves, no matter what the situation.

MARYOTT-CAPAUL, Nancy  
MARYOTT-CAPAUL, Nancy (Age 67) Nancy was born in Colfax, WA on November 10, 1947. She graduated from Central Valley High School, raised three children, was an Army wife, and returned to the Spokane/Couer d'Alene area when her husband retired. She worked as a paralegal for the U.S. Attorney's Office and then for private law firms. She always wanted to graduate from college, and took courses over many years. On June 13, 2014 she received her Bachelor of Arts in Communications, Magna Cum Laude, from Eastern Washington University. Nancy passed away following heart transplant surgery on Monday, January 26, 2015. She fought heart disease for many years and underwent several surgeries. She lived for the past three and a half years with an LVAD (heart pump). She spent eight months undergoing an experimental medical protocol to increase her chances for a successful transplant. Although her results were not what she and the doctors had hoped, she finished the protocol so that the data gathered would help guide future research and better the lives of others. Through it all Nancy remained cheerful and positive, maintaining the hope that she would receive a transplant. On January 24, a heart was found for her. Aware of the risks involved, she chose to have the surgery. We all hope the information gained from her experiences can improve medical treatment for others and save lives. She leaves behind her husband of 46 years Lewis Capaul; sons Tom Capaul (Jennifer), Jason Capaul, and Cameron Traxinger; sister Jamie Maryott; brothers Dana Maryott and Glenn Maryott; grandchildren Alexandria, Karyn, and Jordan, and a multitude of nieces, nephews, family and friends who will miss her dearly. Nancy's doctor called her a "Warrior Princess." Her battle here is done, but she lives on in our hearts.
