FAREWELL TO THE KINDEST MAN I EVER KNEW....
DWIGHT CAPSHAW, Santa Fe native, passed away after heart surgery on June 28th. Born at St. Vincent's on July 4th, 1949, he was the son of C.C. and Dorothy Capshaw and attended the Santa Fe Public Schools and the University of New Mexico. Dwight was Head Landscaper at UNM before becoming the Superintendent of the New Mexico Capitol Building--a position from which he recently retired after 46 years of service to the State of New Mexico. He is preceded in death by his parents, and is survived by: his wife, Diana Montoya Capshaw; his daughter, Crista Capshaw Paton (Eric); grandchildren: Gavin Ciska, Makenna Ciska, Chace Ciska and Landon Paton; step-children: Francesca DiPalma, Giancarlo DiPalma, Chiara DiPalma, and Bianca DiPalma-Woo (Michael); step-grandaughter expected Baby Girl Woo; sister Patricia Jaramillo (James) and nieces Michelle Jarrett Barry and Jordan Barry. Dwight was a warm and sensitive man with a humanistic philosophy of life. He was an athlete, an avid reader, a lover of pets and all animals, a die-hard Yankee fan, an expert on WWII and all airplanes, a beloved husband, father and stepfather, a faithful friend, the possessor of a unique and hilarious wit, a liberal Democrat, and a most honest man. The vibrancy of this world is lessened by his passing. A Memorial Service for Dwight will be celebrated in the Rotunda of the New Mexico State Capitol on Friday, July 7th at 10:00 a.m. A private family burial will be held. Honorary pallbearers: Waymon Whittemore, Joseph Dwight Gonzales, Steve Trujillo, Paul Louie Chavez, Richard Danny Montoya, Giancarlo DiPalma, Landon Paton, and Armando Overby.

Some of the things about life that Dwight truly enjoyed in the days before his passing..........

























Farewell, Sweet Prince--I'll love you forever...........
