Edward wedded the love of his life, Karen, on November 23, 1963 and joyfully celebrated their 50th anniversary shortly before her passing in 2014. He retired from JCPenney after 35 years of service. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, dancing, playing bridge, tennis, card games and an occasional visit to the Choctaw Nation. Photography was one of his passions. In addition to doing his hobbies, he loved to share his knowledge and skill by teaching both formally and informally to anyone with an interest in learning. Since the 1990’s, he was an active member with the Plano Photography Club and held various ofﬁces including President. Recently, Ed was appointed to the Ferris Chamber of Commerce.
Edward is preceded in death by his loving wife Karen Elisabeth (Richardson) Auger, his parents Alfred Dudley Auger & Evelyn (Branstetter) Auger and son-in-law, Eric David Shade.

He also is survived by his grandchildren: Christian, Brandon, Ben, Tyler, Caden, Brayden and Abigail. He recently welcomed his ﬁrst great-grandchild Jackson.
