Gordon Capshaw Obituary

Gordon Capshaw, 75, died by senseless gun violence on Wednesday, September 6, 2018. Gordon was truly a free spirit. He was kind, generous and non-judgmental. He had a joke for everyone and every subject. He loved babies, puppies and the Toledo Zoo which was where he had his first job.

He served in the army in the Vietnam War.

He was born January 22, 1943 to Dolores and Gordon Capshaw who have preceded him in death. He is survived by his wife, Catherine Hoolahan; his two sons, Peter and Colin; his sisters, Mary (Murray Todd), Walling (Richard Mariea), Eileen (Arthur Wilen), Alice (John Estes); his brother, John; his stepsons, Brian and Patrick; and many nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind many friends who are as crazy as he was.

Please send contributions to The Toledo Zoo or the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, 840 First St. NE, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20002.

A memorial service is being planned.
