When we moved to Florida in 1999,, we were lucky enough to purchase a condo just down the hall from Lee and Augie. We quickly became good friends and always had great times together. While I was working they made Mary Ann a part of their family, often at bingo. Augie introduced us to the best (and only) grunts we had ever tasted. They were sorely missed when they moved inland. Augie, you were a great friend and wonderful man. Rest In Peace and give Lee a hug from us.

I met Aug back in 99’ through my in-laws that lived on the same floor as Lee and Aug’s condo.

I went offshore fishing many times with him and he showed me the ropes from catching, cleaning and cooking anything from grouper to grunts.

Very kind, very generous and always the life of the party.

Send a few keeper grouper my way next time I go out buddy. Tight lines all the time.

Augie came into my life because of his girlfriend Joan. I can honestly say, once met you’ll never forget. He always had time for everyone. He was kind, generous and had an obvious love for family and friends. I will never forget the belly laugh’s we shared, those are hard to come by. I’ll think of you often my friend .❤️🦋

Your heart was huge and warm...you will be missed beyond words, but I know you are now with Lee and always here in spirit. LOVE YOU POP, rest in peace.
