Anthony F. Capraro III passed on February 27, 2019 in a hospital near his home in Ocoee, FL.
Anthony was born on September 17, 1939 in Yonkers, NY to Dr. Anthony Capraro and Anne Nicita Capraro. He married Dianne Rosswig Capraro in 1961 after dating since the age of 15. They had three children Anthony F. Capraro IV, Brian T. Capraro and Christina A. Capraro (both deceased).
Anthony graduated from Riverdale Country School in Riverdale, NY where he was on the football, baseball and basketball teams. He went on to earn his Bachelor degree from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA.
Anthony loved working directly with students. His early professional career included being: headmaster of the McBurney School, the only YMCA school in the country, in New York, NY; headmaster of Woodmere Academy in Woodmere, NY; Scholar-Athlete Admission Dean and coach of football, baseball and wrestling at Yale University in New Haven, CT. In 1980, Anthony started TEACH, an Educational Search and Consulting Firm, which allowed him to work with colleges and high schools across the country. I also gave him the opportunity to use his knowledge and connections to help students choose, apply, attend and succeed in college. Anthony continued running TEACH until his passing.
Anthony is survived by his wife Dianne, his son and daughter-in-law Anthony and Julie, their sons Tyler and Nicholas, his daughter-in-law Maggie, his sister-in-law Doreen Lasch and his sister Patricia Capraro Loizeaux.
