People who knew Jim referenced him by “Cappy.” He was known for his bar, Cappy’s 49r and restaurant, La Cucina Italiana. His Italian sausage was an all-time favorite to everyone. He was an active member of the Omaha Sports club for decades, enjoying volleyball, bowling and golf. Whether traveling to the Caribbean, Hawaii or Europe, the most cherished vacations were the family ski trips.
He will be remembered for his infectious smile and laugh. To many in our family he was known as “Uncle Jimmy” even though he was a cousin to most. His imprint is forever left with so many people.
