Beloved Husband, Son, Father, Uncle, and Brother

WOLCOTT– Mark E. Capaldo, age 52, of Wolcott, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, November 5, 2023, at home. He was the beloved husband of Jeanette (Stango) Capaldo.

Mark was born on November 14, 1970, in Waterbury, CT, the son of Joan (Stack) Capaldo and the late Robert J. Capaldo.

His career was focused on computer technology; he worked for several tech companies in the area, including Compass MSP and, most recently, AI Engineers, where he served as the Assistant Director of IT. Mark had a passion for golf, music, and sports cars, and he enjoyed racing. However, his greatest accomplishment was being an exceptional father to his daughter, Gianna.
