Aaron Joseph Capps, age 28, of Wyoming, passed away on Monday, November 13, 2023.
Aaron was born on July 21, 1995, in South Bend, Indiana, to Joseph and Kathyrn (Huff) Capps. He came into this world fast, and just as fast he left us.
Aaron was a loving and loyal son, a family man - always had time for his brothers and sisters. He was quick with a hug, a joke, a smile, and “I love you”. He always found time in his busy schedule for his family. He inspired all of us to strive to be better in every aspect - student, scientist, musician, family member or just as a person. He leaves behind a huge hole in our immediate family as well as all who knew him. That being said, he was never one to bring attention to himself. He was very humble and wanted to lift others up in every area of his life. He would not want us to be sad, he would want us to remember all the good times we had together as well as continue to keep striving to be better - always striving for the better.
His older brother Philip said: ”Aaron was such a smart and loving person. He was always there for me when I needed him. He was always far busier than I was and still, he would make time to help me with my classes and pursuits.”
Aaron loved learning and shared that passion with all those who had the pleasure of knowing him. Aaron was homeschooled all through high school, eventually graduating during his senior year with an Associate of Science degree from Lake Michigan College. After high school, he attended Grand Valley State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry with a minor in viola performance. Aaron was athletic, energetic, and compassionate brother and friend. While attending Grand Valley State University, he got into distance running, which led to him completing several half-marathons, marathons, as well as a half-Iron Man, and a full Iron Man. He loved being outside, and would regularly go on backpacking trips, often bringing members of the young adult group at Wyoming Seventh-Day Adventist Church with him where he could often be giving Bible studies on Friday evenings. He was also fully dedicated to serving in Pathfinder Youth Ministry as one of the leaders because of his love for young people. He enjoyed spending time with the kids camping, learning new honors, and ultimately pointing them to Jesus. His love for young people was what sparked his passion to go into teaching.
Aaron was married to Chilsea for only a brief time. However, he was a selfless friend, boyfriend, fiance, and eventually husband. He strived along each step of his relationship to make it stronger and closer. Words cannot express how wonderful of a husband Aaron was to Chilsea. He cared, comforted, supported, and loved his wife just as Christ loves the church. We love you so much, Aaron.
Aaron will be deeply missed by his wife, Chilsea Bindosano; mother, Kathyrn Capps; siblings: Phillip, Michael, Jonathan, Caleb, Rebekah, and Rachel; father, Joseph Anderson Capps; grandpa, Clyde Capps; grandma, Norma Huff; grandma, Diane Capps; parents-in-law, Samuel and Ninfa Bindosano; brother-in-law, Bryent (Beauty) Bindosano; sisters-in-law: Cherish, Rose, and Grace; nieces: Niria and Nimah; Kirt and Sally Frain; as well as many other family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandpa, Ray Huff; and grandma, Cheryl Capps, and great-grandma, Elsie Huff.
A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 18, 2023, at Wyoming Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 2580 44th St SW, Wyoming, MI 49519. A visitation will take place from 9:30 a.m. until the time of service at the church.
