Eric Carl Cappelli was born to Jane (Koehler) Cappelli and Roch Cappelli on October 23, 1963, and raised in the Bronx, New York. His enthusiasm was infectious, and his presence was larger than life. He always thought of ways in which he could help others, and often offered it before anyone had to ask. He had a huge heart and always extended a helping hand. His selfless nature and generosity defined him as a person, a friend, and a mentor to many.

Eric was loyal to his family and friends and a dedicated hard worker.
His career in the NYPD spanned nearly two decades and he retired as a Lieutenant. Eric’s colleagues referred to him as a great cop, and an even better man. He was an effortlessly talented polymath - an artist, mechanic, and contractor. He was known for his many projects throughout the years and each one came with its own story; but his favorite thing in the world was to make his daughters laugh. His courage and fortitude dealing with his current health crisis was admirable.

He leaves behind his wife Jeanine, daughters Rachel and Sophia, his mother Jane Cappelli and siblings Brett (Jo-Ann), Joy (Philip Spiegel), Jed (Ginger), and nephews Brendan Cappelli, Charles and Philip Spiegel, and niece Hope Spiegel. He was preceded in death by his father Roch Cappelli, his maternal and paternal grandparents and nephew Brett Anthony Cappelli.
