Longtime Chiefs Band Leader Tony DiPardo Passes Away

Longtime Kansas City Chiefs band leader Tony DiPardo passed away this morning, his family told FOX 4 News.

"Our grandpa passed away this morning at St. Luke's. It was very peaceful, surrounded by family and friends. He was a wonderful man, a great grandfather, great husband, great father and he will be missed by all, " the family said in a statement.

His nickname was fitting: Mr. Music. He was 98 years old.

Sad day. Share with us some memories of the TD Pack Band.
