Capoferri, William John

“Bill” Capoferri age 90.
Long-term Narberth resident passed away at Bryn Mawr Hospital Sunday December 6, 2009.
Husband to Clorinda (deceased) for over 59 years and father to Gloria Jean Longwich and Joanne Lisa Lineberger. Grandfather to Matthew and Kate Lineberger and Adam Longwich
Born November 19, 1919 in Royersford, Pa as one of 11 siblings, he is survived by his sister Vivian (Mary) Genung.

Raised in Royersford until his enlistment in the U.S Army in December 1942 Bill served with the 304 Medical Battalion of the 79th Infantry Division. He saw action in Normandy, Northern France, The Rhineland, and Central Europe.

After the war he married his child hood friend Clorinda Mary Capoferri and settled in Narberth Pa where he began his career as a carpenter and builder. He remained in this profession until he retired and then began a 20-year career as the Narberth building inspector.

His contributions to the Narberth community were many including designing and building the privilion that now stands at the Narberth playground. He was an active member of the St Margaret(TM)s Catholic Church for many years until his health declined.

His greatest loves besides his family and grandchildren were the Philadelphia Eagles, the Phillies, and crabbing down at the Jersey Shore. He was an Eagles season ticket holder for over 40 years

On Friday December 11th there will be a viewing from 9:00am until 11:00 am at St Margaret(TM)s Church on Narberth Ave. Services will be at 11am. Bill will be laid to rest at Calvary Cemetery. There will be a celebration of Bill(TM)s life after the services at the Narberth Fire Hall.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the family will be appreciated.
