His funeral service will be held on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. at Emanuel Lutheran Church, 9 New London Avenue, West Warwick. Burial will be in St. Joseph Cemetery, West Greenwich.
Auger passed away early Friday morning after succumbing to his injuries following a car accident on Fish Hill Road. According to police, Auger lost control of the car and went off the road, striking a tree about a half mile in from Harkney Hill Road.
Loved ones have created a memorial at the crash site and former classmates have been visiting since Friday. (If you plan to visit the site, please take the proper precautions as the road is narrow with very little room to walk or park on the side where the memorial can be found.)
