Stratton Constantine Capiotis

October 16, 1952August 26, 2020

Stratton Constantine Capiotis, 67, of Oley, PA entered eternal rest on Wednesday, August 26, 2020, at his residence. Born October 16, 1952 in Reading, he was the cherished son of the late Constantine and Bessie (Kontaxes) Capiotis.

Stratton was a graduate of Penn State University, class of 1975, where he earned his associate’s degree in Chemical Engineering. He was employed as a Chemical Engineer & as a Maintenance Manager at Cabot Corp. for 24 years before retiring in 2005.

Deeply rooted in his Greek culture, he was a member of Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church, Wyomissing.

Stratton was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting with his crossbow and cutting firewood. This sparked his passion for nature conservation upon which he donated 68 acres of his own property to the Berks County Conservancy program, now Berks Nature. He also volunteered at Boy Scout of America Volunteer for several years. Uncounted young men's lives were enriched due to his great leadership, guidance and selfless service to them. In addition to tending to his woodlands, Stratton enjoyed gourmet cooking -- most famous for his shrimp scampi with alfredo linguini.

Stratton's spirit will be carried on by his wife, Debra (Wilson) Capiotis, with whom he shared 45 years of marriage with. He also leaves behind daughter Constance Capiotis, of Pittsburg, PA; son Nickolas Capiotis, of Nashville, TN; brother Milton Capiotis and his wife Sharon, of Sinking Spring to cherish his memory.

Stratton was a dearly loved member of the Mine Rd neighborhood. He was an incredibly kind and thoughtful person. Not only did he bring the most delicious meals to share, but he also brought his infectious smile and humor as well. He often stopped to chat and catch-up during our walks; or offered to plow or lend equipment when someone needed help. He was always ready and willing to step in without a word.

He will be deeply missed by his neighbors and especially by us.

We always enjoyed sharing stories about nature, the environment, and local events with Strat. He was a good neighbor and active in our community gatherings. We looked forward to the savory dishes he shared in generous quantities at every event . He was a talented chef, making many different cuisines, but his Greek offerings were everyone’s favorites. Doug and I especially liked the lemon chicken orzo soup he made. Strat will be missed.

To all of the Capiotis family: We are so very sorry and heartbroken to have learned of Stratton's passing. The only comfort is knowing that he no longer has any pain and no more suffering. He was a true fighter and gave his all in trying to battle his cancer. We just can't imagine all he endured during that time. Stratton was a great guy and more like a brother than friend to my brother....quite the hunting buddies (lots and lots of memories). I've known Stratton since I was a little girl due to that friendship. I know my family feels honored to have known him. Please accept our deepest heartfelt sympathy in your loss and God Bless!

Love Sharon, Jim, and Eric Shipe
