Chi si volta, e chi si gira, sempre a casa va finire. No matter where you go or turn, you will always end up at home.
Family is not an important thing. It is everything. It is one of nature’s masterpieces. Family is the compass that guides us. It is the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter. Franklin P. Capone was exactly that. He was Friday Pizza, Pasta Sundays and homemade Italian Foods. He was the pure embodiment of what it meant to be a family man. On October 24, 2021 Franklin left the family table on this earth and took a seat at the family table in heaven at the age of 79 at Cooper University Hospital in Camden. How lucky we are to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. Death ends a life, not a relationship.
In his formative years, Frank was involved in the Auto Body industry. He began as a mechanic, then he became an owner of Blenheim Auto Body as well as the manager of Maple Collision. In his later years, he became an independent insurance adjuster, and retired from CEI Insurance Company in Trevose, PA. Frank was a homebody, and loved working out in his home gym. He was involved and taught Karate for many years, and earned a black belt. Frank enjoyed his RV, and his boat. He took many trips fishing and crabbing down in Cape May over 25 years owning his boat and RV. Frank took pride in his Italian heritage. He studied the Italian language proudly, and visited his “Home” Italy, back in 2002.
Frank is predeceased by his parents, Frank and Theresa Capone, his children; Steven Capone and Lois Capone, and his grandchildren; Britney Capone and Nicholas Cook. Frank is survived and will be dearly missed by his devoted wife Rose Ann Capone (née Van Eck), his children; Tom Capone and his wife Karen, Michelle Cook, and Mark Fenkner. He also is survived and will be missed by his grandchildren; Steven Capone, Jr., Amanda Bakley, Maria Chance, Daniel Bakley, Jennifer Bays, John Capone, Carmen Cook and Evangeline Martin as well as 12 great grandchildren.
Say not in grief “he is no more” but in thankfulness that he was. To have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever.
