BOARDMAN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Mark Capps, affectionately known as “Tex”, age 74, transitioned to his Heavenly Home at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 27 in Granbury, Texas.

Mark was born on July 23, 1946, in Ft. Hood, Texas, the son of Herman Capps and Nellie Marie Calabria Capps.

Mark was a compassionate, Christian man who had a passion for helping others. He served as a leader in his churches and his community.

Mark was a brilliant man of genius IQ. He started his own business as early as college. He was an independent man who worked for himself most of his life. He went back to school later in life to get a degree in psychology so he could help others even more. He became a certified hypnotherapist in order to make his therapy practice more effective.

Mark had many talents including painting, sculpting and photography but his favorite hobby by far was dancing. He was a championship swing dancer, as well as an accomplished ballroom dancer.

He was loved, and will be dearly missed, by his wife, Rhonda Herring; his stepchildren, Erika Telarico-Routt and Angela Stoner; his stepgrandchildren, Kaylee Telarico, Colten Telarico and Mia Telarico-Routt; his two sisters, Marie Capps and Melody Horacek; his brothers, Manley “Kent” Capps, Mike Capps and Mitch Capps; his nieces, Jasmine Capps, Amelia Capps and Krystal Capps Malone and his nephews, Justin Shanabarger and wife, Kari, Mickey Capps, Kevin Shanabarger and wife, Stephanie, Stephen Shanabarger and wife, Jessi and Ben Capps.
