Celebration of Life for David Jay Auger is June 1

David Jay Auger, the CEO of Continuum, passed away Friday May 17 of complications resulting from cancer. He is survived by his wife of 35 years Nancy; his son DJ of Chapel Hill; mother Ann Auger of Naples, Fla.  (Ron Cunningham); sister Susan Bales and her husband Dane of Salem S.C., as well as many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.


He had a long career in the multi-media industry, starting in sales with Time Warner in Columbus, Ohio and then Houston. His drive and personality opened the door as the publisher of the Daily News in Los Angeles. Returning to Time Warner as divisional president, he spent time in Minneapolis eventually settling in Charlotte. He most recently served as CEO with Continuum, based in Mooresville.

An avid outdoorsman, he loved hunting and fishing while passionately following The Ohio State Buckeyes which consumed many Saturday afternoons. Several civic awards and recognitions demonstrated his unselfish and generous contribution of his time and devotion to community.

A Celebration of Life will be held 11 am June 1 at Heritage/Weddington Funeral home at 3700 Forest Lawn Dr., Matthews. In lieu of flowers please contribute to The American Cancer Society www,cancer.org.
