Dr, Stephen August, Once told me at the age of thirteen. "Thomas you can do and be anything you want to do and be, as long as you have your health" That statement would change my life for ever. Now 68 years of age, I have passed that statement onto many a person.
Dr. Stephen August
A man to be remembered!

Dr. August hired me back in 1976. He was a gentleman and every contact I had with him was a pleasant one. A good long life. May he Rest In Peace.

To the family of Dr. August,
I worked for Dr. August at the NB School Department many years ago. He was such a wonderful man - brilliant with a sense of humor. He always spoke lovingly of his family. I will be thinking of all of you during this difficult time.
