Dear Helen, Michael, Mark and Rosemary, This guestbook doesn't have the space for me to even begin to do justice to a memorial to your husband/father. I have and hold the greatest affection for him. In 1977 he truly rescued me from a horrific summer job at a large, local car dealership. To his credit, I had applied for work in the Spring 1977 and he called me in for an interview and told me that he could not hire me, having promised someone else a summer position, but that he would call if something developed. He later called and I began work in late June 1977, for the Lepore and Caggiano incarnation of the business. He then paid me, a part-time summer worker, for Independence and Labor Days! Working there, with Helen as secretary, and even Helen's dad doing jobs around the office, and with other great people like Joe Caggiano, Dave Perry, Steve Smith, Pete Forrest was the best summer job I could have imagined, perhaps the best job, outright. I worked on and off for the next four years. He always treated me perfectly. I later came to learn that Augie's childhood home was adjacent to my father's childhood home on Hough Street, and that Augie knew my father and his family. The picture in the obituary is exactly the way I remember him. He seems to have lived as full a life as anyone I know including, most unfortunately, the loss of children. He was a great man. Please accept my most sincere condolences during this difficult time. God bless Augie and God bless your family.

He will be missed, but what a wonderful man with a terrific sense of humor to keep people smiling.

Sincerely, Dana, Bob, Brendan and Carly

I grew up with Augie Lepore as my neighbor, and throughout my life I always called him Mr. Lepore. Finally, when I got to be about 50, he told me one day that I could just call him "Augie" instead of "Mr. Lepore". However, I never could stop calling him Mr. Lepore. The one thing I knew about him is that he loved to work in his yard. After reading about his life, I don't know where he found the time to even do that. But he did love to work out in his yard, it seemed to me that doing that was perhaps a kind of a therapy for him; he just seemed to be very much at peace when he was doing that work. As I grew older, working on my parent's house got to be a kind of a therapy for me as well. I would see him when we were both outside working, and he was always so interesting and also fun to talk to. And as can be seen, he lived the fullest life anyone could hope to live. And I will also say this; after reading his obiturary, I am glad now that I never stopped calling him "Mr. Lepore" because he deserved all the respect that I could give him.

Augie was one of the kindest members that I met when I first began working for the Connecticut Association of Land Surveyors. He always had a smile and was more than willing to be helpful in any way.
My sincerest condolences go out to his entire family.
