Charles P. "Butch" Capone CONCORD, N.H. - Charles P. “Butch” Capone, 76, died Dec. 7, 2018, at his home in Concord, New Hampshire. Butch was a native of Northfield, Vermont, where he lived with his wife, Everen, of 30 years. He was predeceased by his wife, Everen (Miller) Capone; his parents Charles and Thelma (Hauver) Capone; his sister, Charlene Hull; and his son, Marc Capone. He is survived by his nieces Karmen Bascom and husband Charles, of South Royalton, Vermont, Kathy Yurek and husband Charles, of Cornish; his grandnieces Karen Lambiotte and Katherine Bascom. He also leaves behind his three stepchildren Susan Farnham-Lewis, of Barre, Vermont, Sherri (Farnham) and Ken Gilmore of Concord, Dean and Kim Farnham, of Northfield, Vermont; grandchildren A.J. Bean, Shawn Paul, Dayna (Farnham) Sousa, Thomas Farnham, Samantha Farnham, Dylan Farnham and Brawnson Lewis; two great-grandchildren, Liam Charles Sousa and Randy Gibbs; as well as an abundance of additional extended family and friends. Butch was such a friendly soul; his family and friends were very important to him. He would do anything for anyone; those who knew him could always count on him to lend a hand or leave an impressionable visit. His laugh was infectious and one couldn’t help but to join in when he shared one of his stories about his adventures and the happenings along those adventures with his beloved dog, Pita, always by his side. Butch worked at M & W Polishing in Barre, Vermont, from 1971 until July 2007 when he retired. He then moved to Concord in 2007 with his wife, Everen. He loved his work and was always busy doing something; being idle was never in his vocabulary. He enjoyed volunteering his time at a local charity; and each season, he would load his lawnmower or his snowblower into his truck and assist elderly neighbors near him by mowing their lawns and clearing their driveways after a snowstorm. Sometimes Everen would not see him for hours on end, but knew he would arrive back home for dinner, and possibly a shopping trip to the stores after, if she wanted to. He could never say no to Everen, he loved her dearly. He loved to play backgammon, card games, including cribbage, and enjoyed the cribbage tournaments he competed in at the Canadian Club in Barre, Vermont, where he was a lifelong member. He and Everen and their dog, Pita, loved going on adventures and finding new places to eat and visit. They sometimes would get lost for hours in their travels but spending time together exploring new places was something they both enjoyed and never thought of themselves as getting lost, but as an adventure. They loved traveling to Maine accompanied by his mother, sister and his two nieces. You could always count on Butch to tell you where the best Chinese food was. His grandchildren were very important to him and many summers when they were younger, Dayna and Thomas would not be far away from his side, assisting him in all of his adventures of camping, fishing, boating and visiting. One of his proudest moments was the birth of his great-grandson, Liam Charles Sousa; he was honored knowing his first great-grandchild would share his name. Butch will be missed by many, but for those of us who had the honor to know him, we will cherish each and every memory and moment we had with him. Rest in Peace, Charlie! A service will be held at Kingston Funeral Home in Northfield, Vermont, on Feb. 3, 2019, at 1 p.m., followed by a celebration of life at the Canadian Club in Barre, Vermont, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests to please make a donation in his name to: Friends of Forgotten Children, 224 Bog Road, Concord, NH 03303. http://www.fofc-nh.org/

We miss you Charlie. All will be okay here, Dayna and Joe and Liam, and Ken and I will be okay. You're free now, soar high up there with my mom and tell her we love her. We wish you nothing but peace. I still look out the window expecting you to come by for a visit, or for help with something, and a good home cooked meal.
Love you
Sherri
