On the early morning of February 24, 2020 at the age of 64, Agostinho "Augie" Mendes Madeira of Newington passed away surrounded by his family. Born in Corgas, Portugal, Augie was a longtime resident of Newington, CT. He leaves his wife Maria Lourdes Madeira and daughters, Christina Madeira and Stephanie Madeira of Newington; two adored grandchildren, Arielle and Mario Ferreira; two sisters, Piedade and husband Manuel Duarte of Surprise, AZ, Teresa "Teri" and husband Antonio "Tony" Duarte of Rocky Hill and numerous family and friends in the U.S., Canada and Portugal. He is predeceased by his parents, Manuel and Silvana and a younger brother, Antonio Julio. Augie was self-employed for many years. He was the owner of Lafayette Liquor Store and co-owner of Dominic's Bar. In recent years he was employed by Capital Cleaning Services where he managed the Maintenance Department at Bradley International Airport, retiring in 2018.
Augie loved life. He enjoyed spending time at his second home in Nazare, Portugal. He traveled as often as he could. He valued spending time with family and friends and enjoyed long conversations regardless of topic. He also enjoyed hosting family and friends, cooking, golfing, fishing, and playing cards. He volunteered and ran many events over the years all to enrich our Portuguese Culture. He served on the Board of Directors of the Portuguese Club of Hartford. Augie was an easy going, loving and a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Making memories was important to him and he leaves us with an abundance of memories for us to treasure during our lifetime.
Funeral procession will be Saturday, (February 29), 9:00 am from the Sheehan Hilborn Breen Funeral Home, 1084 New Britain Ave., West Hartford, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial, 10:00 am at Our Lady of Fatima Church, Hartford. Entombment will be in Cedar Hill Cemetery, Hartford. Calling hours are Friday, (February 28), from 4 to 7 pm at the funeral home.

O Sr Agostinho vai deixar muita saudade junto de todos nós, familia e amigos, os dias de férias na Nazaré não seram mais iguais as tardes a jogar as cartas, os almoços na barraca, tudo que passou connosco vai ser recordado com carinho e amizade, que descanse em paz até um dia, Lena Carvalho, Portugal

So so many memories working for Augie and Tony at Dominicks.. We were just like family there. We laughed so much. I couldn't have asked for a better boss than Augie. He is a man you could never forget. He was always there for everyone when you needed him, included me, even if it was just to listen. He did. I was blessed to have had the time with him that I did. Another angel has moved on back home. Will see ya again friend. Joanie
