Obituary for Donald Edmond "Don" Auger

Donald Edmond Auger
September 20,1933 – April 5, 2020

Pop passed away peacefully in his sleep on April 5, 2020. He was born in Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan to Edmond (d.1966) and Irene Auger (d.1992), his immediate family included Aime Auger (d.), Armand Auger (d.), Juliette Arnold (d.), Germaine Yoneda, Leon Auger, Clarella Bearss, Deanna Graff (d.), George Auger, Dale Gaumond, Marie Hook, Linda Miller, Leah Nogue. He left behind Renee (Leblanc) his wife of 65 years, their four boys Andre (Mary Anne), Chris, Vince (Barb) and Allan (Marci), grandchildren Meagan, Matthew, Kalum, Kole and 3 great grandchildren Kyle, Zane and Addison.

Pop was a farmer and a contractor until he moved to Sparwood, BC in 1970 where he worked at a newly started coal mine in various positions. He took early retirement in 1982 and after spending a month in California that winter he knew what he wanted to do. Our parents started spending their lives as snowbirds in Thousand Palms, California. During the summer, they lived in Brooks, Alberta until moving to Nanaimo, BC in 1990. He loved working as a handyman in both Nanaimo and at his home in California. When he turned 75 he decided to hang up his hammer and his little teapot for good. He enjoyed building furniture as a hobby and his kids all have pieces that he lovingly built for them. In his last years he had lots of family around to keep him occupied playing cards and keeping him amused.

We all loved him and will greatly miss him.

There will be a private family service later in the year.
