Sports came naturally to Augie; not only did he play baseball, but he was also an accomplished golfer and played in many local tournaments. In his earlier years, he worked as a caddie for many golfers at Meadow Lane Golf Course. He continued to play baseball at many levels. He enjoyed competing as an outfielder on the Indiana Auto Supply team.

He worked as the general sales manager at RV Leaders and Camping Outlet.

August was a reliable and genuine man who valued relationships. His quick wit, spontaneous sense of humor and big heart made an impression on everyone he met. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, nephew, friend and coworker.
