Agustin “Ogui” Emilo Palomanes was born on July 24, 1931 in Buenos Aires, Argentina to Bernardo and Maria Palomanes. He married his wife Alicia in 1969, and in 1971 they had their first daughter, Lucia. Shortly after, they moved to the United States and he found work in Connecticut at Macton Corporation as a mechanical draftsman. In 1974, Ogui and Alicia welcomed their second daughter, Adriana. Ogui and his family lived in Connecticut until the late 1970’s, when they returned to Argentina for a short time before relocating to California in the early 1980’s, where Ogui worked as a mechanical draftsman for Parsons Corporation.
Ogui was, first and foremost, a family man who loved his girls and was notorious for his great, but odd, sense of humor. Ogui enjoyed fixing and building anything and everything. From fixing a broken washer to building their family home in Argentina, he enjoyed being known as a craftsman and the neighborhood handyman. If Ogui was not fixing or building something, he could probably be found on any given afternoon enjoying a really, really good Argentine barbeque with his friends and family.
On the evening of September 10, 2012, Ogui passed away peacefully at his home with his wife and girls by his side. Ogui is survived by his wife Alicia, his two daughters Lucia and Adriana, his sister Josefa, and his uncle Manuel.
