Pablo lived and enjoyed life to the fullest. His first passion was singing. He recorded and toured with his band, Los Caballeros de Pablo Sepeda in the 1970s.

He founded Los Paisanos Golf Club in Hobbs, NM, and was an active member of the PAGA in Seguin for many years. Dad worked hard all his life, becoming a jack of all trades.
