Tribute

August “Augie” Engelhardt, Jr. passed away on Friday, July 5, 2019. He is survived by his beloved wife, Carol Lombard Engelhardt; his son Todd Engelhardt (Shirley) and daughter Sawn Martinez (Albert); grandchildren Michael Gangi (Jennifer), Nicole Fabacher (Donald), Alex Engelhardt and Hillary Engelhardt; and great grandchildren Kayla, Ava, and Cameron Gangi and Gabby and Bubby Fabacher.

Augie graduated from Holy Cross High School and then went on to serve in the Navy Reserves. After his military service he worked for many years as a service manager at Garrard Chevrolet and John Brown Oldsmobile. He was an avid outdoorsman whose interests included deer hunting and fishing. His passion for sports extended to bowling, golf and cheering on the New Orleans Saints. As a young man, he played minor league baseball as a catcher, and was also involved in drag racing.

His biggest love, however, was for his family. He was a loving husband and devoted father, who adored his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a funeral service at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 11, 2019.
