Harold D. Augsburger, beloved husband, father, uncle, brother and friend, passed on peacefully Saturday, Jan. 30, in Venice, Fla., following a prolonged illness. Born to Clara and Albert Augsburger in Beaverdam, Ohio, in 1923, Harold grew up on a farm in nearby Bluffton, Ohio, with his identical twin brother, Gerald, and their sister Josephine. During World War II he served in the U.S. Army in both Europe and the Philippines. Upon his return, he attended Ohio Northern University and married Jeanette Brown in 1947.
For many years, Harold and his wife, Jeanette, lived in Mentor, Ohio, where he was active in the Mentor Methodist Church, Boy Scouts, and the Mentor Recreation Park. In retirement, Harold gave of his time to the Venice East Community Association and to Big Brothers Big Sisters, being recognized in 2003 as Sarasota County Big Brother of the Year.
Harold will be remembered as an outgoing, energetic, active, and very capable man who always maintained a beautiful yard with many orchids and fruit trees. He freely gave of his time to others and enjoyed life to the fullest. His warmth, his joy, and his willingness to participate were a gift to all who knew him.
Harold is survived by his wife, Jeanette; daughter Tess Willows, of Lafayette, Colo.; son Craig and his wife, Joan, of San Diego; stepbrother Donald Spallinger of Lima, Ohio; stepsister Eloise Schick of Bluffton, Ohio; and special friend and Little Brother Nick Pecora, of Venice.
