Anthony F. Sepolio Sr. of Katy, Texas, 92 and our Hero, passed away Monday April 7, 2014. Born in WacoTexas April 16, 1921, to Houston and Jovita Sepolio, he passed peacefully with his children (Tony, Nanette, and Ce­dric), daughter-in-law (Kim) and grandson (Eric) at his side. Devoted husband and father of three, grandfather of 8, great grandfather of 3, and a friend and mentor to count­less others. He is survived by son Tony Sepolio Jr. and wife Kim of Conroe, daughter Na­nette Zeig and husband Larry of Hearne, and son Cedric Sepolio of Katy; two brothers Bernard Sepolio of Houston and Rudolph Sepolio of Ham­ilton; grandchildren Michell Zeig and husband Jon of En­nis, Michael Zeig and children (Damion, Andrew, and Sadie Clarice) of Copperas Cove, Daniel Zeig of Hearne, Nicho­las Zeig of Coppell, Eric Sepo­lio of Houston, Steven Zeig of College Station, Scott Sepolio of Denton, and Philip Zeig of Tyler.

Tony loved life as few could. He began his music ca­reer starting at the age of 12 when he traded a pony for a fiddle. He was inducted into the Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame in 2003.

A tireless advocate of mu­sic, he taught music in schools all around Texas. His musi­cal influence has been felt by thousands of kids over these 50 years in the profession.

A WWII Vet and one of the best examples of the greatest generation. He will be missed.
