Mark Auringer

d. January 1, 2014

Mark Douglas Auringer, 52, of Austin, died unexpectedly at his home on Wednesday, January 1, 2014. Mark was born in St. James, MN on May 5, 1961 to Eugene and Lois (Olson) Auringer. He attended grade school at Central Lutheran and was a graduate of Austin High School in 1979. He married Sandra “Sandy” Rauen in Austin on his birthday in 1984. Mark worked for Woodvale/REM for a total of 17 years and enjoyed befriending the residents there. He then worked for Hormel Foods in the Accounting department as a Clerk for the last 17 years. Mark was an avid sports collector and enjoyed the outdoors, especially camping and spending time at the Boundary Waters with his son Matthew. He was a member of Northwestern Singers group. Mark, his father Eugene and his older brother, Brian was in the group at the same time and that meant a lot to Mark. He loved music and gardening. His father-in-law, “Red”, loved gardening together with Mark, as Red spent his final years living at the Auringer residence. Mark was a happy and proud father and was very excited to find out he was going to be a grandfather to two grandbabies this coming summer.
