Capron, Max
7/16/1922 - 12/21/2020

Our beloved Max Jay Capron passed away on December 21, 2020 in Del Norte, Colorado at the age of 98 years old. Max was born on his grandmother's homestead near Springfield, Colorado on July 16, 1922.

Max grew up in Gunnison, Colorado. He served in the US Navy during WW2 as a signalman on the USS Chester. He married Lois Elna Woods in La Junta on July 16, 1946. After he graduated from Colorado State College (now CSU), he worked as a landscape architect. Truly, thousands of trees in the Denver area can be attributed to his career of over six decades.

Max and Lois raised three sons; Gary, Bryce, and Scott in Arvada, CO. He was a founding member of Trinity Presbyterian Church where he sang in the choir and served as a leader in many roles.

He is survived by his sons Bryce and Scott, his brother Wayne Capron, and his sister Patricia Friesen. Max is also survived by five grandchildren, four great grandchildren and many more extended family members.

The memorial service will be at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Arvada, Colorado later this year when it is safe to gather together. Memorial donations can be offered to Trinity Presbyterian Church.
