Theo was born on December 17, 1989 in Spring Valley to Deb Sampson and Theodore “Ted” Piano. He was a lifelong resident of the Illinois Valley, spending his early years as the 5th generation on a family property in Oglesby and later moving to Peru where he spent his school years. He maintained a fearless curiosity throughout his life and never forgot a birthday. Family was always very important to him.
Theo is survived by his mother Deb Sampson of Peru; his father Ted (Toni) Piano of Lombard; sisters Deana Costin of La Salle and Tanya Piano of Chicago; nephews Tiler Costin, Caprecio Patterson, Jabryle and Rodney Phillips; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Theo will be remembered by all who knew him as a big guy, with an even bigger heart.
Memorials may be directed to the family.
