Obituary

Anthony Frank Capriotti, 95, of Hamilton, entered into God’s eternal rest on Wednesday, November 27, 2019 at home surrounded by his loving family. Born in Trenton, NJ, Anthony was a lifelong area resident. He was a graduate of Trenton Central High School Class of 1943. He was a proud U.S. Navy veteran serving as a pharmacist mate during World War II from 1943 to 1946 aboard the amphibious ship LST 707 in the South Pacific. After the surrender of Japan in Tokyo Bay, the LST 707 spent several months as part of the occupational force. Following his naval service, Anthony attended Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science graduating in 1950. He was the owner of Kehr’s Pharmacy in N. Trenton from 1959 to 1979 and Capriotti’s Pharmacy in Hamilton. After his retirement he went on to work part time as a pharmacist for RWJ Hamilton for about 10 years and Clover Pharmacy and Theradex in Princeton Jct.

He was active in the Society of Mercer County Pharmacist’s as past secretary, treasurer and president. He was dedicated to the community of N. Trenton, as the first point in the health care system. Anthony played the accordion for several years in the ABC Trio, performing for several nursing homes in Hamilton Township. He was a parishioner of Our Lady of Sorrows -St. Anthony’s Parish, serving as a lector for 20 years. He was also a member of its Holy Name Society for over 50 years and enjoyed reading and just being a do-it-yourself man about the house. He was a member of the Hamilton Senior Center and for several years a contributing member of the Hamilton Seniors Theatrical Group where he made so many wonderful memories with his many friends.

Anthony was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and friend to many. He loved his children who were #1 in his eyes and he took great pleasure in contributing to the many family get togethers.

Son of the late Nicholas and Lucy (DiGuiseppe) Capriotti; brother of the late Marie LaMachia; father-in-law of the late Michael Cherin; brother-in-law of the late Joseph Bonifazi; Anthony is survived by his one and only love of 68 years, Loretta “Laura” (Bonifazi) Capriotti; his 4 beloved children, Lucia Jackson (Brian), Elizabeth Cherin, Patricia Nalbone (Frank) and Nicholas Capriotti (Sherri); 3 adored grandchildren, Daniel Cherin (Neyha), Christopher Cherin (Kristin) and Nicole Nalbone; a great-grandson, Ari Anthony Cherin; as well as many other family and friends.

I had a Father who talked with me. Allowed me the right to disagree. To question----and always answered me, as well as he could ----and truthfully. He talked of adventures; horrors of war; Of life, its meaning; what love was for; How each would always need to strive to improve the world to keep it alive. Stressed the duty we owed one another to be aware each man is a brother. Words for laughter he also spoke, a silly song played, a happy joke. Time runs along, and I am not wise, but I look at life with seeing eyes. My heart is happy, my mind is free, I had a Father who talked with me. I LOVE YOU, DAD! Give Mike my love. Bet
