John Aldrin Caple, Jr., 71, passed away on Dec. 19, 2021 at home surrounded by family. John passed after a short but fierce battle with cancer.
John was born on Sept. 8, 1950 in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho to Betty Joyce Hogan and John Aldrin Caple, Sr. Although he was born in Idaho, he was raised in the farmlands of central Washington. He was a good little boy but loved to pull pranks, which sometimes got him a harsh reprimand from the school principal.
Around age 11, his parents divorced. Shortly after, Minor Wetzel (or Daddy Minor as John called him) came into his life and married his mother....
