Fredrick Augustine Obituary

Deacon Fredrick Augustine, Sr. was born October 27, 1941 in St. Louis, Missouri to the union of Elmer Augustine and Pearl Lawrence who both preceded him in death. He was the youngest of his siblings Elmer, Gloria and Ruben which all preceded him in death. Fredrick was educated in the Ritenour School District. He was drafted in the Army and served his country well. He was a proud 101 St. Airborne Army Veteran.

Fredrick was united in holy matrimony to Elizabeth Hammonds in November 1962. Out of that union four children Alice, Barbara, Fredrick Jr., and Nadine. He also has four other children John Harris, Jessie Augustine (who preceded him in death} Tracy Jackson and Cortina Jackson. Fredrick accepted Christ at an early age. He was a Sunday school teacher and Superintendent at three different church charters. Two in Texas and one in Missouri. He taught noonday bible study at St. Luke A.M.E. in Elmwood, Missouri. Fredrick was ordained Deacon in 2010. He truly loved the Lord and worked faithfully in the church. He loved reading and studying the Word of God. Fredrick loved spending time with his family and friends. He loved traveling, cooking and especially baking. He always had a story tell, a joke to share and he was very witty. He was a walking encyclopedia. He didn’t know everything, he knew something about a lot of things.

Fredrick moved to Texas in 2007 and worked in the church in many capacities. He met some really wonderful people while living there and they remained close in his heart.  He returned back home
to St. Louis, Missouri to be closer to family in 2017. Upon returning to St. Louis, he resumed his fellowship with St. Luke A.M.E and preceding his death he was in fellowship with Lighthouse Worship Center.

Fredrick went home to be a soldier in God’s army on Thursday, May 4, 2023. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends who loved him. Fredrick leaves to cherish his loving memories his wife Elizabeth Augustine, his five daughters Alice Hammonds (Jessie), Barbara Hammonds (Sherman), Nadine Williams (Jamal), Tracy Jackson and Cortina Jackson. His two sons Fredrick Augustine, Jr. and John Harris, his grandchildren, great and great great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
