Richard A. Capirci, 65, passed away Monday, February 11, 2019 at his home in Hamilton.
He was born October 20, 1953 in Utica, NY, a son of the late Chester and Lucy Kidd Capirci. He grew up in Marcy, NY and attended school in Whitesboro, NY. On August 28,1982, Richard married Patrice Carey at the St. Francis de Sales Church in Utica. He was a dedicated employee of Northland Associates in Syracuse, NY, where he met many lifelong friends, and retired from his position of Project Manager in July 2017.
Richard was a loving husband, father, brother and friend. He was a hard worker, selflessly dedicating his time and talents to those around him. Although humble and reserved, many of his best times were spent enjoying the company of close friends and family. He loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing and spending time at the Hatch Lake family camp. No matter where he went, Richard never left a place without improving it.
Richard is survived by his wife of 36 years, Patrice Carey of Hamilton; daughters, Arianne Capirci of Hamilton; Brigitte Capirci of Columbus, OH; and Danielle Capirci of Syracuse; his son from a previous marriage, Richard Capirci, Jr. of Utica; his sister and brother-in-law, Libby and Michael Mills of Virginia Beach; and a niece, Lauren Mills.
A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 1pm Saturday, February 16, 2019 at St. Mary’s Church, 13 Wylie St., Hamilton, NY.
Interment will be private at the convenience of his family.
Friends are invited to call at the Burgess & Tedesco Funeral Home, 25 Broad St., Hamilton on Friday from 5-7:00 pm.

Patrice, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I never personally knew your husband, however I felt I did through you via our long time relationship as my dental hygienist and friend. He was a loving, loyal and dedicated husband and father. May you and your daughters find comfort in your special memories of him.
