Officers Remember Mike Capicik

The visitation for Mike Capicik is Friday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and the funeral on Saturday at 1 p.m. Both are at the Fitzpatrick Funeral Home at 220 N. Third Street in West Terre Haute.
Members of the Indiana State Police Department are still mouring the loss of one of their own. 

Mike Capicik, 52, died of a heart attack on Friday. 

The 28-year vet of the force was set to retire next month. 

State Police Sgt. Joe Watts recalls Capicik as a generous friend and dedicated officer. 

Watts knew Capicik literally from day one of their respective careers, dating back to 1985. 

"As I arrived two hours early, I found one other vehicle on the lot of the Indiana State Police Academy. I pulled up next to that vehicle, assuming it was someone that was going to be attending the academy as well. Sure enough it was...that person exited the car and introduced themselves as Mike Capicik. So literally in our academy, the 43rd recruit school, Mike Capicik and I were the first two cadets to show up," recalls Watts. 

Watts also says he was glad to get re-acquainted with him in the past few months. 

"We were fortunate enough in the last couple months to really get to eat lunch with Mike, get to talk to him again and it kind of made you feel like it was back in the old days," he said. "If you knew Mike, you knew that he was very generous. That's one thing we remember. He was very generous, he would do anything for you, he would help you."

The visitation for Mike Capicik is Friday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and the funeral on Saturday at 1 p.m. 

Both are at the Fitzpatrick Funeral Home at 220 N. Third Street in West Terre Haute.
