Raymond R. Auger

December 13, 1968 ~ March 30, 2020

Raymond Ronald Auger, a forever resident of Vero Beach, died Monday, March 30, 2020 at the Treasure Coast Hospice. Ray was born in Charleston, South Carolina, December 13,1968, to Roger & Barbara Auger. Ray was known as an extremely talented golfer, good friend to many, and like his dad, a loyal Miami Dolphin fan. A graduate from John Carrol High he also attended Indian River Community College. Ray along with older brother, Richie, was employed at Vero Beach Country Club & Bobby’s on Vero’s Beach. For the past several years, Ray was the well-loved Bar Manager at Vero Beach Yacht Club.


Ray is survived by his fiancé, Coleen Milligan; parents Barbara & Roger Auger; brother, Richie & his wife, Patty; sisters, Elaine Treat & Linda Lykins. He also leaves his nieces, Amanda Treat & Megan Dandurand along with Elizabeth & her husband Steve Smith, nephews, Ronnie, Robbie, Roger Lykins & Zachary Treat. He is also survived by Aunt Fran & husband Joe & Aunt Teresa of Connecticut. Not to mention his many great nieces & nephews, cousins and a plethora of life-long friends.

In honor of Ray, A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. As we think of Ray, a Renee Wood quote, comes to mind…
“Your Life was a blessing
Your memory a treasure…
You are loved beyond words
And missed beyond measure”
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Treasure Coast Hospice, 5000 Dunn Road, Fort Pierce, FL 34981, 772-403-4500.

Ray I didn’t know you. However, I feel I knew you threw your wife. I grew up with her. And just seeing all the beautiful posts and the pictures. I know you made my childhood friend so Very happy and content. You completed her. I have laughed, smiled, liked, and sobbed. Seeing what you and Colleen had gave hope to many who wished they had even a glimpse of what you two shared. May you RIP. I am writing this as if you are seeing this. maybe in my bizarre mind I believe you are.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
