BCMS Remembers Anthony Cappelli

The Bala Cynwyd Middle School community continues to mourn the loss of beloved custodian Anthony Cappelli, who passed away suddenly in October 2021. The Knights recently had a special remembrance plaque installed on the flag pole near the school's front entrance in honor of the dearly departed.

"Anthony Cappelli was not only a wonderful person and dedicated member of the Bala Cynwyd Middle School team, but also a well-loved and respected community member who made lasting contributions to our District," said friend and colleague Leslie Bullitt. "He was personable, caring, hard-working and loyal. We grieve for the loss of an extraordinary person and hope with all our hearts for the well-being of the family members he leaves behind and all those who knew and loved him."

Anthony generously lent his skills and expertise as a craftsman helping build sets for BC Applause, the school's theater organization. He was a graduate of Lower Merion High School (Class of '76) and continued his education at a mechanical and electrical institution. He was employed at Keebler Corp. for 33 years before changing careers to work for Lower Merion School District in the Operations Department.
