Alexander Kapitany
January 06, 1917 - October 17, 2004
Funeral arrangements by
Chapel Lawn Funeral Home

ALEXANDER “KAP” KAPITANY It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alexander Kapitany on October 17th, 2004 at Grace Hospital with his wife, and best friend, “Linda” at his side. Kap was born in Louisville, Kentucky on January 6th, 1917. He moved to Canada with his father, John Kapitany, when he was six years old and lived here for the rest of his life. After joining the army in 1939, he married Mary Romas on December 25, 1939. He had a number of years of distinguished service as a member of the Fort Garry Horse, during which he was wounded in the D-Day invasion in Normandy. He was very proud of his military service and recently took part in the D-Day memorial services here in Winnipeg. Kap was predeceased by Mary after forty-five years of marriage. They had three sons: Bob (Sheryl), Doug (Judy) and Gerry (Marilyn). In addition to his sons, Kap will be greatly missed by six grand-children: Michelle (Phil) Bloom, Megan Dahle, Ari, Jessy, Casey and Jordan; six great-grandchildren (Hayley, Sydney, Talia, Reese, Eden and Sayda) who loved going to visit their Great-Grandpa. He is also survived by daughter-in-law Marsha Permut. Kap worked at Eaton’s for thirty years, the majority of these years as head electrician. While at Eaton’s, he helped a lot of young electricians get their start and he is remembered by many of them to this day. He was a family-man through and through, always willing to drop whatever he was doing to help his kids or grandchildren, nieces or nephews. He was a very handy guy – equally at home supervising an electrical project or a roast on the BBQ for a family dinner. In 1985, Kap married Linda Rink. They had 19 wonderful years together. Through Linda, Kap met his second family and is fondly remembered by Jack and Coby, John and Allison and nieces and nephews David, Cheryl (and son Nathan), Michael, Christine, Linda and James, who will miss their Uncle Kap very much. He was predeceased by his mother-in-law Lydia Rink in 2002. Kap’s family remembers how he loved the outdoors and especially camping and boating. When his boys were young, he and Mary bought an old army tent and they camped often as a family, even before they could afford to sew a floor in the tent. After a number of years, they were able to buy a camper-trailer – true luxury after their years of roughing it! He was a great dad and was never too tired to take his boys or their friends for one last water-ski around the lake. He was an avid traveller and saw many parts of North America by car or plane, including three trips to Hawaii and several to Florida and San Diego. In later years, he enjoyed listening to classical music and going to concerts at the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. He and Linda became quite cultured through their musical interludes. They also loved picnics in the park or sitting on their balcony overlooking Westwood Drive and playing tile rummy. He had a good sense of humour and was always happy to share a story with family, friends or neighbours. The family would like to thanks the staff of 5-North at Grace Hospital for their compassionate, professional care for Kap over the past several months, and especially the last 2 1/2 weeks. A celebration of Kap’s life will be held on Thursday October 21st at 3:00 p.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Ave. Flowers are gratefully declined. In lieu of lowers, friends who so wish may make a donation in Kap’s name to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, 200 - 6 Donald St., Wpg, MB R3L 0K6 or to the Manitoba Lung Association 629 McDermot Ave., Wpg, MB R3A 1P6. Rest in Peace
