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.
