Public servants Cappell, Miceli remembered

| January 11, 2022

TUSCARAWAS COUNTY (WJER) (Jan. 11th, 2022) – Community leaders are remembering two dedicated public servants who have passed away in recent days.
Marc Cappell of Dover died Monday at the age of 73. He served on the city council from 1988 to 2009. A plaque with his picture hangs on display outside the caucus room named after him in Dover Council Chambers.
Mayor Rick Homrighausen says he will be missed.
“Marc was a very good councilman, a longtime councilman. He added a lot to the city of Dover, and he was a very close friend of mine and I’m just sorry that he’s passed away.”
Homrighausen also took time to honor retired New Philadelphia firefighter Jim Miceli, who died following a brief illness Sunday at the age of 59. Jim’s son Anthony is a firefighter in Dover and his daughter Kristin is a paramedic with Smith Ambulance.
New Philadelphia Fire Chief Jim Parrish says he’s fortunate he had the opportunity to work alongside Jim Miceli often through the years.
“We crawled in some fires together in burning buildings. I guess, probably, one of the most important attributes you could say about him is he was that guy who was never going to leave you in a burning building. He was a team player and did an excellent job while he was here.”
Miceli spent 19 years with the New Philadelphia Fire Department, up until his retirement in 2018. Prior to that, he also served a short time with the Dover Fire Department. His arrangements are being handled by the Smith-Varns Funeral Home in Sugarcreek.
The Toland-Herzig Funeral Home in Dover is handling services for Cappell.
