    I didn’t know him except as the sweet man that walked his dog along Bohemian Hwy as I would drive to work. Seeing him with his dog every day was a bright moment for me and I wanted to express my condolences to his family. He will be missed, even by strangers.

      Thank you for your kind words. I’m sure my uncle would have enjoyed meeting you. He often shared with us his new friendships he encountered while walking with Pepe. He wrote a poem of what a “Good Day” was for him… and he included meeting and talking with his neighbors. We are still processing the loss. He will be missed by us too!

    I would see Augie and his dog while driving to Occidental on Bohemian Hwy. They always seemed so content with their routine. I hope Augei’s passing was peaceful and that his dog landed in a loving family.

    I knew Augie for over 11 years, as one of his closest neighbors on Bohemian Highway, just up the street by about 700 yards. My wife Pam and I often made up little food care packages for Augie, of smoked salmon, baked chicken, and home made lasagna. We would usually meet at the front of our cabin while he was on one of his daily walks with Pepe. I would see Augie and Pepe, a hundred yards away, and would crouch down waiting for Pepe to sprint towards me for a big doggy hug. Augie would be smiling!
    The last time Augie and I spoke, we stood in front of my gate, and discussed the beautiful weather, water issues, a tiny bit of politics,
    and how our vegetables were growing. Augie looked up into the sky, absorbing the beautiful sky, and very, very, slowly said, “I like it just the way it is around here.” My wife and I will forever miss our beautifully spirited friend. We love you Augie. We will see you at heavens gate with some BBQ salmon!
