Rosary will be at 7 p.m. on 02/06/2024 at the Andrews Corgill Funeral Home. Followed by the Funeral Service on 02/07/2024 at 10 a.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. He was a hard worker his whole life and claimed he could outwork the 20-year-olds. During his childhood years. Augustino worked picking cotton around the Lamesa area and would travel with his family out of state to pick cherries. Augustino arrived in Andrews, TX around 1956 working at the Highway Department followed by jobs with Texaco and Exxon. He took a job with McCullough working as a wireline operator for many years. He eventually formed his own company “SPR” (Stuck, Pipe, Recovery) His PR skills were one of a kind. As a wireline Operator, his duties required him to analyze data, drill holes and install equipment into oil wells. He performed his job with the upmost precision and safety. He had a commanding voice and demanded attention when he spoke. He had strong opinions and when he made his mind up no one could convince him otherwise. He always went out of his way to greet people in public and he rarely overlooked anyone in the room. He had a strong faith in God and Jesus Christ, and he was devoted to the Blessed Mother. Because during his life he lived a time period when he was drinking alcohol heavily and when Mother Mary appeared to him in the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, he changed his life and stopped drinking overnight. It was an intense conversion. He was always eager to share his story of conversion. Augustino remained true to his character, faith and a day never went by without praying his rosary, He became involved in the prison ministry, visiting inmates to share and bring Jesus into their life. Whenever an opportunity arose to help anyone in need, he would not hesitate. He was always ready and willing to help his fellow man. He enjoyed going to the casinos with his wife, Lily. He was never financially broke because if you knew Augustino, he always carried a 1936 mercury dime in his left ear. He claimed the dime helped him hear better. Augustino was a loyal friend if he was on your side. You had a friend for life. He believed “a man is only good as his word.” He tried to always keep his word. Augustino’s smile and words of encouragement and sense of humor will be missed by all who loved him. Many knew Augustino as “Tilin”, a nickname that remained with family and friends. He Loved his children and grandchildren dearly. His face would light up whenever he talked about his grandchildren.
