Pepere to his ten grandchildren, Danielle, Tyler, Nichole, Brendan, David, Caitlyn, Connor, Emily, Mike and Kyle, and his cherished great-grandchildren, Nathan, Colton, Makaela, Maddison, Nora and Avery.  

He was a graduate of Sacred Heart grammar school, Central Catholic high school and Baylor University.
