It is with great sadness that The Gift of Life, Inc. Officers and Board of Directors announce the passing of one of their own, John Capri. John was a long time, active, member of The Gift of Life, Inc. having helped countless children receive life saving heart surgery. He was a true gentleman and will be sorely missed.

John was survived by his loving wife Sandra. His son Steven (Lisa) Capri and daughter Michele (Stephen) Hoey. He was the cherished Grandfather of Christopher, Alexandra, Andrew, Jillian and Jonathan.

The development of this website was possible due to the generosity of Linda and Jay Edmond Russ of Lloyd Harbor, New York. In 1983, Linda and Jay lost their first child to hypoplastic left heart syndrome in which the heart’s left side, including the aorta, aortic valve, left ventricle and mitral valve are underdeveloped. Their gift helps support Gift of Life, Inc., which undertakes to identify children with congenital heart defects in developing countries. These children ultimately become candidates for treatment. Jay is a member of the Board of Directors of EmblemHealth.
