Vernon Fred Augustine, 83 years, of Sturgeon Bay was called home Wednesday November 23, 2022 from Anna’s Health Care where he resided for the past few years.
Vernon was born September 15, 1939 in Marinette County, the son of the late Murray and Olga (Heisel) Augustine. He worked on the family farm eventually moving to the Fond Du Lac area to work on a family farm for 30 years.

He loved being a caregiver for them.
