 Can anyone tell me what happened to John?  Augie was a great guy.. amazingly funny, twisted humor..

Peggy & Brett - thanks for the updates on John.


John - your quick, twisted wit will be missed.  I remember going to the liquor store with you and a few others in my car.. of course you made me buy the alcohol since I was the biggest and oldest looking and we drove to Snyder Park and drank with all the other under-aged kids.. geez.. that's bringing back some memories... Rest in peace buddy!

Dear John,

I am sorry that we did not keep in contact. Some of my fondest memories of you were the parties at the funeral home. I can remember the kegs being in the bathtub and having to use the bathroom on the first floor where you always told the girls that was where all of the dead people were. Talk about being afraid to open the wrong door...I could hear you laugh as you waited for the drunken female to scream. You were always kind and sincere and easy to talk to. You will be missed by everyone and I too miss you.

I will always remember you as a good friend.  Always there for us when we needed you.  Your sense of humor, kindness, and willingness to take a risk with us will always be remembered.  I look back and have found memories of you.  Those I will hold.  I hope you are resting well my friend.

 My memory of Auggie was his devoted friendship.  He was first to befriend and loyal to the end!  From lunchtime to events he was fun to be around.  I was truly sad to see his name on this list.  I will definitely miss him.
