  1. I remember Auggie. He lived at towpath towers in Fulton. My gran lived there as well. He became friends w MY Aunt Susan DeMar. When Aughie moved to Las Cruces, NM Susie and my cousin Laura Demar would meet up w Auggie and have coffe, lunches, walls, or just sit and chat. I thought it was awesome that he picked up in his golden years and went out there. From what my aunt would tell me he was a ball of life.

    I’m truly sorry for your loss. If possible I’d like to attend his graveside services. Could someone please let me know when it will be if it has not occurred yet? He was an amazing man.

    Good rest your soul Aughie. You’re truly missed by many many people in many states.
