Tony Fenack, Jr. was born on November 2, 1923, in Galveston Texas to Antonio Fenack and Louise Schattel. He attended school in Houston, Texas and was a WWII veteran serving our country in the United States Army. Before moving to El Paso Texas, Tony resided in Seguin, Texas for 20 years and prior to that in Brownsville, Texas for 15 years. He was a member of the New Mexico Horseman's Association and of the Upper Valley Lions Club. His love for horses began as a boy and he rode bareback broncs and bulls in the Rodeo as a young man but when he became a father he gave up the dangerous sport to give his full attention to raising his family. He owned and operated a Texaco Service Station and also owned a fishing business for a few years but still he never got too far away from his horses. For the last 20 years of his life Tony raised and trained racehorses. His most noted homebred stakes horse, Fols Native, also became a leading sire of Quarter horses. His father, Antonio, and his mother, Louise, and his sister, Marie, preceded him in death. He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Ruth, son Wayne (Ida), granddaughter Amy (Brent), grandsons Andrew and Josh Fenack, great grandchildren, Jayme and Braden Hammond. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather who shall be greatly missed. Visitation will be on Tuesday Nov. 12 from 4-9PM at Hillcrest Funeral Chapel, 5054 Doniphan. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 13 beginning at 1PM at Hillcrest Chapel with interment to follow at Memory Gardens of the Valley, Santa Teresa, NM. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the NM Horseman's Association.
