Sad ,I had just become an admirer of him and wanted to see more. He moved me with his portrayal of the American Indian hero Sitting Bull. LC Clyde

"Augie, i called our good buddy Professor Eddy Nurse, and he said, you mean "Cookie" ..I said ya ,didn't you see him on the tube...Eddy says, Augie knew you as " Rocket" because you couldn't skate..What a blow, that was a big shock to me....because i could go on and on about the good times we had...He used to tell me about when he worked with Chuck Norris and Carl Whitters (Apollo Creed) from Rocky....His big movie was " Bury my heart at wounded knee" at the time...I told him that might help you turn the corner to be a major box office. He used to talk with me about Percy Rodrigues who did the trailer for the movie " Jaws ". On another occasion, Percy became good friends with Sydney Poitier and gave him voice lessons. Cookie you kept telling me to come down to Dallas and spend some time with you because you knew i was involved in helping student athletes obtain scholarships in Football and Basketball. I appreciate everything you did for the West End Sports association, i can't thank you enough..it's not easy for me loosing a boyhood friend like you, we have so much history together.. Will meet again, don't know where, don't know when..but i know , will meet again some sunny day..your gone but never be forgotten" Bobby white, www.wesa4kids.org

"Our was sitting in the barbershop and the flash came over the TV that August Shellenberg had passed away..on the wall of the barbershop, an autograph photo of August Shellenberg.. to my oldest and dearest friend,Bobby White, i will never forget the good times we had in Boy Scout Camp, and the wild times we had at the YMCA, when we were 7 years old learning how to swim. Later on you went to acting school because you where working part time at the Chez Paree nightclub and you where doing great impersonations of Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin and Tony Bennett. I will never forget when you came in town to be honored by the National Theater School and i told you, you where long overdue, and you donated a cheque to help the kids from downtown where you grew up, The West End Sports Association...i told you i would meet you in NYC when you got a gig on Law & Order,as Adam Beach's father. August you will never be forgotten by me,your good good buddy, Bobby White, Montreal"

I will see Augie in every beautiful hawk and bird that soars over the lake at Maison de la Casa House. To know his spirit is in the wind and the trees and the water is a great comfort. And I will never again be able to order "Two eggs, over easy" without hearing Augie's French-Canadian take on that. His very moving death as Lear will stay with me as long as his really leaving us will.
Much love to Joan and Reena and Jo and their partners and gorgeous children,.

Dear Joan... Joe and I are so very sorry to hear about your great loss. Such a life you two have led together... rich and adventuresome in so many ways. We always enjoyed our visits with you and Augie and were always impressed with his great talent. Together you two made a great team both on stage and behind the scenes. So glad to know that your family is so close at hand to give you the support and love you need and deserve. Much love to you old friend,
Sally and Joe

What a loss to the world! He was a wonderful actor! I was honored and privileged to have had the chance to meet August and shake his hand. My prayers are with the family.
