Born in New York, NY on June 17, 1947, John was a son of the late Nicholas and Carmella Fanuzzi Cappella and was a longtime resident of Monroe. John served his country proudly in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. After the service he became a lineman with AT&T before joining the N.Y.P.D as a police officer for over 12 years until his retirement. He was a member of the American Legion Post #176 of Monroe and the VFW. He was an avid antique collector and a handy man that could fix anything.

In addition to his beloved wife Geraldine of 42 years, survivors include two loving children, Nicole Goessinger and her husband Richard of Naugatuck and Joseph Cappella of Monroe, a brother, Anthony Cappella and his wife Sharon of Monroe and a cherished grandson, Richard John "RJ" as well as many nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews, and many wonderful cousins and old and dear friends. He was predeceased by a brother, Vincent "Jimmy" Cappella.
