Augustus A. Caracappa  


Gus A. Caracappa, 80, beloved husband and father, passed away on November 17, 2020.

Born June 10th, the son of the late William and Anna (Sanfelice) Caracappa, he was a proud resident of the Norristown area his whole life.  

Gus graduated from Bishop Kenrick High School in 1958. He then joined the Army and served his country, stationed in Babenhausen, Germany for two and a half years.

Gus worked at Alan Wood Steel for many years before going to Stroehmann Bakery, until his retirement in 2002. During his retirement years, Gus enjoyed travelling abroad to Italy, France, and London. He also loved watching old movies from the late 1930’s and early 1940’s. The greatest joy during his retirement years was spending time with his twin grandchildren.

Gus is survived by his loving wife, Joanne (Bono) Caracappa of East Norriton, his daughter, Justine Dellangelo (John) and his grandchildren, Ava and Jake Dellangelo of Royersford, and his sister, Anna Marie DeVito of Spring City. 

Gus was truly one of the greats! He was extremely personable and treated all with an immeasurable amount of kindness and respect. He accepted and loved people for who they were. He also had a keen sense of style, with the belief that clothes make the man.   

His service and interment will be private.

Memorial contributions may be made in his memory to the charity of your choice.
