David Charles Kapper, Sr., 75, passed away at 10:45 am Saturday, August 15, 2020 surrounded by family at his home in Pearl, IL. Born February 25, 1945 in St. Louis, MO to Leslie and Virginia (Reeves) Kapper, David was an avid fisherman and an elite pool player. He was a boxing enthusiast and both a student and fan of mixed martial arts. He was a huge movie buff, and he had a passion for many different types of music. David retired from JB Marine Service in 2011. He leaves behind so many cherished memories to his beloved wife, Barbara, whom he married on June 5, 1980. The most notable of these is his contagious laugh, which we will never forget.
