Danny Ray Augustine II was born on Nov. 8, 1978, in Covington, and died Jan. 8, 2022, at Touro Infirmary in New Orleans, after succumbing to complications from pneumonia. Danny was a bright light in the world. His smile, his sense of humor, and his loving nature will be greatly missed.

Danny is survived by his mother, Ramona Bennett Augustine; his grandmother, Lillian Roussell Bennett; his sister, Tamara Augustine and her husband Mark Meredith; his nephew, Terrell “Drew” Augustine-Meredith and wife Annsley; his niece, Brianna Augustine-Meredith and Levi Porter; his Uncle Freddie; along with his great-nephews Judah, Alec and Ezra. Danny also leaves behind a multitude of family members and friends whom he treasured, many caretakers at Touro who took care of him after his brain injury, and his beloved Nikki Magee.
