August Edward Comella entered into eternal life on April 11, 2017 in Scottsdale, Arizona. He was born in Chicago, IL on November 2, 1922 to Gustav (Gus) and Elsa (nee Will) Comella. He was the fond brother of Joseph, deceased, (Pearl) and Carol Hayes, deceased (Johnny). He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Anne (nee Timm). Augie and Anne traveled the world and loved meeting new friends and seeing new places.

Augie served honorably in the U.S. Navy in World War II aboard the submarine chaser PC1083 in the Atlantic. At the end of the war he married his first wife, Carol, deceased, and they had three children, Richard, Barbara, deceased (Perce) and Robert, deceased. He became interested in Huntington Disease research after his first wife, Carol, and two of their children, Barbara and Robert, were all diagnosed with the disease.

Augie was multi-talented and could fix or build almost anything. His business career allowed these talents to shine through, especially spending almost 40 years with Lewis Spring Manufacturing Co. in Chicago and served as it's Vice President.

Besides his three children, Augie will be missed by his stepchildren, Barbara (nee Luby) and Alan Spacone, Loralee (nee Luby) Bubert; grandchildren, Erin (nee Browne) Staeck, Roger Quast, Mary (nee Browne) Evans, Aaron Evans; great grandchildren, Heather and Brittany Staeck, Mallory, Jennifer, Jessica and Katie Evans, Eric Ajibade; and great great grandchildren, Grayden Thompson and Carter Ajibade.
