Keith was a man that I looked up to, as I grew up. He was one of the most driven, humble and honest men I have had the honor of knowing and working with. My father Stu, thought very highly of him and was very greatful for his many years of dedicated employment at Delta Electric. I was so pleased, that Keith found time to attend his Dad's funeral in November. I want to send my family's deepest sympathy to Terri and the entire Capellaro Family during this difficult time.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Ed not only looked like his dad but was a catcher (hard ball)like his dad.When not catching he patroled centerfield like his favorite Yankee (Mantle)thus we use to call him "Da Mick" we went to Rogers Park one Sunday afternoon to watch a baseball game(hardball) among black players they needed a catcher so he voluntered,caught the whole game without a facemask,now that's tough or maybe crazy RIP brother
