We Remember

SODARO, Anthony “Capper”

October 1, 1944 — June 17, 2022

Anthony “Capper” Sodaro passed away unexpectedly in Kelowna, BC, on June 17, 2022, at the age of 77.

Capper is survived by his sons Tony and Mike; his two daughters-in-law Bridget and Kim; grandchildren Mason, Walker, Dominic, Knox, and Hugo; and many extended family members and friends.  He was predeceased by his parents, Natale and Concetta; and his siblings Paul and Jenny.

Born in Italy, Capper immigrated to Canada with his family at a young age.  He joined the Navy at age 17 in order to support his two younger siblings, who were supported and raised by the wonderful extended family that Capper had in Toronto, ON.  Capper enjoyed a number of careers after his service with the Navy, as a butcher, and pizza place owner/operator, and then dedicated many years working in customer service and management at various airlines in Canada.  He will always be remembered as “Coach” to so many people in our world, and to many young people, Capper was a “second father”.  Capper was the first coach for both Tony and Mike in almost every sport they played growing up, and he never stopped supporting his two sons and all of his grandsons in all of their many sporting endeavours.

Capper loved fishing trips, travelling, bowling and visiting with family and friends.  In his later years, he could be found at Perc’s coffee house, having a coffee and a smoke in his own chair, while holding  “session”.

He will be deeply missed by his family and everyone who knew him.

A Celebration of Life will be held on TUESDAY, JULY 5, 2022, FROM 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, at THE OKANAGAN MISSION ACTIVITY CENTRE, 4398 Hobson Rd, Kelowna, BC.
