Early life and career

Epis was born and raised in the West Australian goldfields town of Boulder. He had a sister, Ena. Both his father, Virgilio, and mother, Giusefina (née Borlini), hailed from the Province of Bergamo in northern Italy.

Epis made his name as a promising player in the Goldfields National Football League (GNFL) with the Mines Rovers club, winning the Fletcher Medal in 1955. He sought a clearance to Essendon but was refused. Epis played on the half-back flank and on the wing. When he arrived at Essendon he worked as a butcher. He was a part of two premiership teams with the Bombers.

After Playing

In 1972, Epis set up his own cleaning service. It was taken over by James Aforozis, but Epis has continued as a consultant to the business. He also owns the 'Epis' and 'Epis and Williams' wineries and vineyards.
