Charles Lindy Capps, Sr., age 94, of Pleasant Grove, passed away on September 3 after an extended battle with Parkinson’s Disease. He was born on August 31, 1927 in Ensley, Alabama to John and Mary Capps. Being born and raised during the Depression shaped him into a man of great compassion and tenacity. He proudly served in the Navy from 1945 – 1946 when he was honorably discharged. In 1948 he decided to enlist in the Army where he rose to the rank of Master Sergeant in the 11th Airborne Division. He fought honorably as a member of the 187th Regimental Combat Team in the Korean Conflict where he completed two combat parachute drops. He was very proud to be a Rakkasan. After his military career, Charles worked for US Steel for 38 years. During this time he also started a company, Capps Brothers Painting, with his brother, Ivan. They employed their sons, nephews, friends and sometimes professionals. Charles is preceded in death by his mother and father; his beloved wife, Virginia, and their infant daughter, Joni; his siblings Jennie, George, Johnny, Pearl, Bill, Ivan and Ira; numerous in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. He always loved a reunion and we are sure there is a fabulous one in heaven today. He is survived by his children Mary Hardin, Charles Capps, Jr., John Capps and Robbi Liddell (Stuart). He relished his role as Papa to Wes (Emma), Mitch (Lori) and Julia Capps (children of John) and Virginia and Sarah Liddell (children of Robbi). They were the lights of his life. The visitation will be from 9:30 AM until 11:00 AM, Saturday, September 11, 2021, at Peoples Chapel Funeral Home. The funeral Service will be at 11:00 AM at the Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Oakland Cemetery. Charles always hoped for a cure for Parkinson’s Disease. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the American Parkinson’s Disease Association.
