Guy was a graduate of Lakeshore High School and Central Michigan University. He was a retiree of the Cook Nuclear Plant, working as a QA auditor. Guy had so many amazing qualities that made him “Guy.” He was the most devoted husband; a patient and understanding father; a fun and attentive papa; and the best friend that one could hope for. His greatest quality, felt by all who met him, was his capacity to love. He loved all, and he loved deeply. No one ever left Guy’s presence without knowing The Father’s Love and without knowing how loved they were by Guy.

Guy is survived by his wife of 20 years, Linda (Fenrick) Caple; his children, Zachary (William Leitsch) Caple, Daniel (Gaja) Caple, Jennifer (Matthew) Warren, Michael (Tiffany) Bowie, and Kevin Bowie; his grandchildren, Caleb, Adelyn, Liam, and Isla; his mother, Mary Louise Caple; his brothers, James (Laurie) Caple, Stephen (Michelle) Caple, Jeffrey (Patricia) Caple, Scott (Meredith) Caple, and David (Kristal Lynn Archer) Caple; and many loving nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his father; and his nephew, Jacob.

Sorry to hear about Guy, for a period of time he was a regular cross-country skier at Love Creek Nature Center and we always enjoy talking to him and getting his insights on trail conditions and sights he would see while skiing.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Guy's illness and death. I was a classmate of Guy's at Lakeshore High. In thinking of him now, words like fun-loving, kind, considerate and polite come to mind - and that intoxicating smile. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Linda and the Caple Family. Vickie Nitz

We are so saddened by Guy’s death. He was our classmate at Lakeshore. He was very handsome and a kind person. John played some sports with him. We were in the same circle of friends back then.
We are both so sorry for your loss.
We are praying that God will sustain you through your heavy burden of grief.
