Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at Augie's premature passing. God took him while he was doing something he loved. We met through soccer and were blessed by his zest for life. He will be missed.

Augie Martin was an exceptional person. Loyal, funny, mirthful, friendly, hard working, devoted to his beloved soccer and countless friends...we, too, are still grappling with this loss. A VERY bright light among us has gone out. There is no one else we know who is like this person--he leaves a huge mark on all of our hearts.
