and they had a daughter, Michele. In 1970 Cap met Virginia (Kitty) Jaques. They
were married and moved to, Idaho. Together Cap and Kitty raised Michele,
Malinda, and Marci. They divorced but remained friends throughout the rest of
Cap was always making sure his kids, grandkids, and
great-grandkids were taken care of. He was always there for those he cared

to their away games as well as travel to watch the NCAAs with his close
friends. He also played pool at Barbs tavern on their team for many years.

and the second being in October 2014. After Cap's 2nd stroke he moved in with his

February, Cap moved in with his granddaughter Cassie in Nampa. For the last two
and half years of his life he was able to stay with loved ones and be taken
care of. Kitty also lives with Cassie so between the two of them, his

surrounded by the ones he loved the morning he passed away.
