Dennis Capio, a loving, loyal, and reliable man, known for his spirited nature and boundless enthusiasm, passed away on December 4, 2023. Born on August 15, 1968, in New York City, Dennis moved to Fords and then to Edison, where he was raised. He lived in Verona from 2002 to 2010 before making West Orange his home for the last 13 years. He was a trusted pillar of the community, a devoted Roman Catholic, and an active member of the Missionary Families of Christ.
Dennis was a man of many talents, with an accomplished career as an e-commerce director in the automotive industry for 13 years. He was a proud graduate of the Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison and later earned his bachelor’s degree from Pace University. Despite his professional successes, Dennis always placed his faith and family at the forefront of his life. He was a steadfast presence at his church, embodying the verse from the Book of Proverbs, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5).
Dennis was an avid fisherman, grew up fishing with his brothers and spent most weekends in the summer fishing in Montauk with his older brother and at the Jersey Shore, and also fished off the California coast with his younger brother.
Dennis is survived by his loving wife, Luvi, his parents, Cesar Sr. and Rosemille, his brothers, Cesar Jr. and Michael, their wives, Mirry and Emy respectively, his father-in-law Ricardo, his sister-in-laws Maria Gervacio and Maria Jackson and her husband Scott.
