Robert E. Capron

Robert E. Capron, 60, Garland, Pa., died peacefully at AHN Saint Vincent Hospital on Saturday, Nov. 20, 2021.

He was born in Warren on June 17, 1961, the son of the late Gilbert O. and Ellen L. Vaow Capron. 

He worked in tool and dye and manufacturing throughout most of his life until recently when he became a home health care worker. However, his true passion was working with wood and creating beautiful wood crafts.

Bob’s greatest joys were spending time with his forever fiancee, Cheryl Hultberg, and his grandchildren, whom he loved dearly.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by two sisters, Cindy Biesemeyer and Cathy Ishman; and an infant brother, Gilbert. 

In addition to his fiancee, Bob is survived by three children, Ryan Capron (Stephanie) of Cambridge Springs, Brittany Rittenger (Josh) of Meadville and Baron Capron (Melissa) of Harborcreek; five sisters, Sue Capron (Keith) of Mesa, Arizona, Sherry Catalfu (Pat) of Corry, Patty Chase (Jeff) of Garland, Karen Morton (Dean) of Bear Lake and Tammy Fiscus of Garland; four brothers, Ken Wallace (Cathy) of Missouri, Jeff Wallace (Cindy) of Maryland, Ken Capron (Nikki) of Virginia, and Matthew Capron (Patti) of Townville; five grandchildren, Riley, Devin, Elexius, Noah and Genevieve; and several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

A private service and burial will be held in Mill Village Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the C.S. Warthman Funeral Home Inc., 69 N. Main St., Union City, PA 16438, to help the family with funeral expenses.
