Patricia "Patty" Capps Obituary

Patricia “Patty” Hart Capps, 85, of Myrtle Beach, SC passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family on January 21, 2024.  She was born on September 9th, 1938 in Conway, South Carolina.

Patty married J. Harold Capps, Sr, her high school sweetheart, on August 7, 1960 and left shortly after to help him serve 8 years in the army. While stationed in France, they enjoyed a “three-year honeymoon” and were able to travel throughout Europe, making lifelong friends along the way. When Harold was deployed to serve in Vietnam for a year, Patty returned home and helped to open the Tinkerbell Kindergarten at First Baptist Church of Myrtle Beach. This evolved into the current  Child Development Center. Upon his return they built their forever home and raised their family in Myrtle Beach. She continued her love for children by teaching Sunday School to the 3 year old class at Ocean View Baptist Church for over 20 years. Patty’s gentle, giving, and selfless spirit was evident to all who knew and loved her.   

She is survived by her husband, J. Harold Capps, Sr. of Myrtle Beach, a son, Dr. Hal Capps and wife, Sherri, a daughter, Jill C. Morgan and husband, Thad, of Lake Mary, Florida; grandchildren, J. Reed Truslow, Esquire, of New York City, and Haley Kathryn Capps and Emily Capps, of Myrtle Beach.

There will be visitation at 10am on Saturday, January 27th, at McMillan-Small Funeral Home in Myrtle Beach, with a memorial service to follow at 11am with Reverend Tommy Moore officiating. A private burial will follow in Ocean Woods Memorial Cemetery.
