I first met Augie when I was a set/props intern at Halifax's Neptune Theatre in, I think, 1967. He was lead in "The Rainmaker," the best Starbuck ever and since. Even tho' I was a "grunt," Augie was so kind to me...I had to prepare palatable food and beverages for him! He took me to a cast party and treated me with utmost respect, a true gentleman on a quite crazy night. I have never forgotten that. Always wanted to play Lizzie but life got in the way....! I will always remember him in "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee," a performance of a lifetime.
My heartfelt condolences to his wonderful family. I lost my beautiful husband to lung cancer, so I sadly share the sadness.
Blessings to all--
