Augustine Joseph Angrisano, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, was called home to the Lord Sunday, October 27, 2019 at the age of 79. Augie was born on November 28, 1939 in Ensley, Alabama to Jack and Mary Angrisano. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Neal Angrisano. Augie is survived by his wife, Jo Ann Angrisano, his sister, Virginia Angrisano, his sons, Steve Angrisano (Jenni) and Michael Angrisano (Janine), grandchildren Julia Hill (Jordan), Benjamin Angrisano, Joshua Angrisano (Emily), Emily Angrisano and Joseph Angrisano, great-granddaughters Josie Rae Hill and Willow Anne Angrisano. Augie played football at Ensley High School before attending and graduating from the University of Alabama. He met the love of his life, Jo Ann (Caiola) Angrisano, when he was 18. They wed on July 2, 1964 and remained in love and happily married for 55 years. In his 20-year career with IBM, Augie rose from typewriter salesman to Regional Manager and moved from Birmingham (AL) to Atlanta (GA), Columbia (SC), Newport Beach (CA), and Dallas (TX). His experience and relationships at IBM led to another 20 years of business successes including Vice President positions at Epson Computer and Avid Technologies. Upon returning to Birmingham in 2000, Augie opened a Primrose Preschool where he was greatly loved and well known as “Mr. Augie” by hundreds of children and parents for nearly a decade. Augie was famously generous and took every opportunity to love, encourage, nurture and treasure his family. He also enjoyed watching Alabama football, playing golf and cards at Hoover Country Club, and spending time with his many friends.

We first met Augie, when our daughter, Janine, and her betrothed, Michael, invited us all to dinner. We knew from the start that Janine was smitten by her very charming father-in-law to be.

Augie always expressed such love for his daughters-in-law. We were so happy that she was so welcomed into the Angrisano Family.

She will surely miss you. And, so will I.

JoAnn, sorry I could not make it to the service but I am in a wheelchair because of the masive stroke I had. You were in my thoughts and prayers and still are. Augie was a very sweet special person and I am so sorry he is gone

Augie and I were friends since 1st grade and also neighbors in Ensley. He was a special friend and I will forever miss him. Our families were very close. May he Rest In Peace.

I was lucky enough to be involved in high-school choir with both Steve & Mike, and the Angrisanos served as joyous, generous, super-loving secondary parents to our whole teenaged troupe of singers. All of my memories of Augie & his lovely wife revolve around awesome gatherings in their gorgeous home or choir trips with them as chaperones (believe me, EVERYONE jockeyed to be in their group), and every single moment resonates with warmth, laughter, and fun. I’m so, so sorry for the loss of this exemplary husband, father, and man. The world is diminished by Augie no longer being in it, but he has left a magnificent legacy of love and open-heartedness that magically made everyone around him feel like family.

Sending enormous love, peace, and prayers for comfort and healing ...

I grew up in the same neighborhood as JoAnn and we know that Augie was a Big Alabama fan! But my family is a Big Auburn fan, back in those days Alabama seem to always win we had an anonymous person to deliver cokes and potato chips on our front porch every time Alabama won! YES you guessed it we found out that it was AUGIE! When my GRANDSON attended Premrose and Auburn had Cam Newton I had Andrew take MR AUGUIE coke and potato chips !!!We all loved the memories of the past 💙!!!

Steve and Jenni, what a beautiful obituary. As I read about your father, I couldn't help but think of my own dad. Theirs was a generation that was exceptional. I wish I would have known your dad. I'm sending you all my love, prayers, and best wishes. I know this is a difficult time in your life, but I know you are in the hands of God and he is wrapping you with his love and grace. I'm sending my thoughts and prayers to you and your entire family for this tremendous loss. God bless!

With three weeks left in the season Coach Harris moved me up from the B-Team to the varsity. I was playing guard at about 155 pounds. The varsity was running goal line offense plays and I was across from Augie on defense. The first play he drove me through the end zone. I decided to submarine him on the next play and I did that on the next three plays. Augie came to the line and ask me if I wasn't getting tired of him hitting me in the head and I told him "not yet". He started laughing. I always considered him a good friend.

Augie and Joanne were our wonderful neighbors for 13 years. We enjoyed many good times together. Augie was an avid Alabama football fan and always worried about the upcoming game. Sometimes during the week he would come over to discuss the upcoming game and get my thoughts. I always assured him he had nothing to worry about. We always ended our conversation with a Roll tide and a Hookem. I miss you and love you my friend!
