03/04/1970 - 03/20/2021



Anthony “Tony” Capstick lost his courageous battle with cancer on Saturday, March 20th, 2021.  He passed peacefully at home surrounded by his loved ones.

He leaves behind the love of his life Kimberly  Capstick, son Jake Capstick, step-daughters Nicole and Isabel Hamblen,  and grandchildren Robert, Lilith, and Oliver.  He is survived by his parents Patricia and Joseph Bakula and his brother Chris (Karen) Capstick.  He will also be missed by many other family members including his in-laws Robert Gannon, Lynn and Joseph Rieger, his sister in-laws Kristen (Chris) O’Barr  and Kelly (John) Gannon in addition to many nieces and nephews.

Tony was born on March 4th, 1970 and grew up in Cleveland, Ohio.  He graduated from Baldwin Wallace University in 1992 with a BS in Computer Science. Tony excelled on the track team throughout high school and college.  He moved to Arizona in 2009 and continued his career in IT Services at Wells Fargo Bank.

Tony was a loving husband and a devoted father.  He loved cruising in his 2014 California Special Mustang heading out on weekly date nights with Kimmy or taking rides with Jake blasting the tunes.  Tony and Kimmy loved to travel and find new spots in Arizona to explore.  He was an avid sports fan and spent game days with Jake, cheering on their beloved Ohio State Buckeyes, Cleveland Browns, and Cleveland Cavaliers.  Weekends were spent with friends and family, swimming, grilling, and listening to his famous playlist in the backyard.

A private Celebration of Life was held on Friday, 3/26/21.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Best Buddies Program at https://www.bestbuddies.org/donate-to-best-buddies/


  • Sending my condolences to friends and family. Tony and I never met. I wish the time between me finding out he was my half brother and his passing hadn’t been so short.

    So sorry to hear of Tony’s passing meet him at Alied Color, he taught me so much. I’ll never forget the lunch breaks we had. We would always stay late and have a great time. He was a good friend in those days. Tony will surely be missed, my prayers are with you family during this time of sadness.

  • I did not know Tony that well, I was friends with Marianne, what I do know is that is was a sweet kind man. Know that he went home to be with the Lord and he will live on in our hearts.

    I worked with Tony. He was always so laid back and easy going. May peace be with you all in your time of mourning.

  • Peggy O'Sullivan

    There are no words to tell you how sorry I am that you have lost your husband and best friend. I can only send you virtual hugs and love and you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  • I worked with Tony at Avery. He was great to work with and taught me a lot. I am so sorry to hear about His passing. My prayers are with you and Jake.

  • Life is full of many blessings and Tony was one of them. I worked for Tony but his approach was much more than a manager. I had plenty of conversations with him regarding interactions with others, my own family struggles and joys. Never a face to face meeting but I feel his presence and impact on my life regularly. God Bless those left behind and Thank the Lord we had Tony.

  • Tony… I am fortunate to have called you my classmate and my friend! My heart goes out to your family & friends, I send them all the strength & peace needed during this time. While we may have gone separate ways after CCC, you will always be someone I call my friend. You will always be part of our group, “The Horsemen.” Rest at peace, rest in power. 😢

  • Lived with Tony in Heritage Hall at Baldwin Wallace in the B section. Played Intramural football with him as well. GREAT person. Broke my heart to hear the news. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
