On Friday, June 11, 2021, Carl Capler, amazing husband and loving father of four children, passed away at the age of 47.
Carl was born in California to George (Mike) Capler and Timetta (Metcalf) Capler. He was a proud member of Sheet Metal Workers Local 36 in St. Louis, MO. In late 2010, he met Jennifer (Reeves) Capler (neither actually remembered the date), and they married on March 22, 2014. They each brought 2 children into the marriage and raised all 4 children as all their own. In order of age (youngest to oldest), they are: Kady, Chris, Jason, and Angelica.
Carl was a wonderful soul that touched the hearts and lives of many. He was giving and truly cared about the welfare of others. And, if he thought you were messing things up, he was not afraid to tell you as it was. He was a loving and supportive husband and father, encouraging his wife and children to obtain that which they desired. He was the supporting force behind his wife’s doctorate. He had a passion for cars and had finally taken that first step to start his own business. He was well known for his language, sarcastic sense of humor, and a laugh that was reflected in his eyes.
Carl is survived by his wife Jennifer, his four children, Kady, Chris, Jason, and Angelica, his father George (Mike) Capler, his mother Timetta (Metcalf) Capler, his loving Aunt Colleen (Pokie) Perry, and several other aunts, uncles, cousins, and beloved family members. A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, June 25th, 2021 in Grafton, IL at 3 o’clock p.m. Flowers or donations may be sent to 610 N. Springfield St., Grafton, IL, 62037.
