CAPLAN: Mashel (Mace) Caplan was born on March 25, 1932, to Philip and Cernie Levin Caplan in Rochester, Pennsylvania. He died peacefully on Friday, Sept. 30.
Mace attended Geneva College in Beaver, Pennsylvania. He had many interests. He painted, he sang, he played several instruments, enjoyed putting puzzles together and loved reading mysteries, especially by the author James Patterson.
Mace looked forward to one of his nieces (Linda, Karen and Bobbie) calling him every night at 7 p.m. and discussing the happenings of the day. He especially liked to discuss his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers and never missed watching a game. He was a caring, gentle man. Everyone who met him commented that he was so soft-spoken and sweet.
He was the brother of the late Dorothy Caplan Weinberg and her husband Mel Weinberg, Bernard Caplan and Reuben Caplan and his wife Fernie. Surviving are his sister-in-law Marilyn (Bernard) Caplan and seven nieces, four nephews and many great-nieces and -nephews.
Mace had wonderfully devoted caregivers, Carla, Jer’Cara and Carol. The family is so thankful for their dedication and commitment. The family is also very grateful to the staff at The New Riverview.
He will be buried at Agudath Achim Cemetery in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, near his family. A graveside service will be held on Friday, Oct. 7, 2022.
