My memories of Mr. Cappelli are some of my fondest. He was always there with a quick one line about "my shoes" before lacrosse games and it became a pregame tradition. He was a friend to my family and someone I always smile about when recalling.

Antonette/Phil/John/Aj and family,

You have truly lost a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend with the passing of Angelo. I knew him for a long time and always saw his generosity in everything he did. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. We pray the love of God enfolds you during your journey through grief.

We send you thoughts of comfort.
