I have a fond memory of Augie from when we were performing at the Shaw Festival in 1973. He had accidentally interrupted my lines to him and therefore, when I continued on, decided to make funny faces at me upstage (which was where I was). I was, as it happens, difficult to corpse and so we finished the scene, but I waited until closing night to get my revenge. The trickle of blood and grime that I had previously smeared on my face I now changed into a very liberal wash of gore and dirt and, instead of addressing him from two feet away, I went nose to nose with him with my line "The men, sir, the men..." Toi my great satisfaction, he completely lost it, giggling happily for several seconds, but we completed the scene and, as we left the stage, he said, "You and me, Kelk, outside- now!" Luckily he was joking and had taken the whole thing as I had expected he would - with his customary humour.
R.I.P., Augie, it was a privilege to have known you.
