Sheldon Lee Caplan (68) of Minneapolis left this world on July 6, 2012 after 4 months of difficult health in Mesa, Arizona where he wintered.  He was born on the anniversary of the bombing at Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1943 in Fargo, ND.  He served in the Navy and graduated from Fargo Central High School and Arizona State University.  A Mason and Shriner, Mr. Caplan entertained family, friends and business contacts with magic and his clever humor.  He leaves his wife Pam Kappa Caplan, daughter Kimby Caplan, stepchildren John Epperly and Ann Epperly, sister Marlene (Ivan) Segal, nephew Ian Segal, niece Danielle Herndon, and his close cousin Rae Kapel.  Mountain View Funeral Home handled the arrangements.  A Funeral will be announced at a later date.  Donations in remembrance of “Shelly” can be sent to those who provided him with such loving care at Mission Palms of Mesa for Sheldon Caplan, 6458 East Broadway Road, Mesa, AZ  85206.

    Shelly was truly a unique person and one of my very best friends from high school to the end. Sharp as a tack, quick of wit, and always up for mischief, every time with him was an event. A great loss for me and those who knew him well. My deepest and most heartfelt condolence to Pam and Kimby. I will miss him very much.

    Shelly made every occasion and every moment feel real, alive, and special. I will miss all the times he made me laugh. I will miss his smile. He was the best Dad I could ever imagine and I will do my best to honor him for as long as I live.
