It is with heavy hearts that the CTC said goodbye to one of its own today.
Major Agustin Gonzalez, Class of 2019 Downing Scholar, who had just graduated with a master’s degree from Duke University, lost his life in a car accident on the evening of May 25th while en route to his next duty station at Fort Carson.
Augie was laid to rest today alongside his two daughters Noelle (6) and Gwen (2) who also lost their lives in the accident.
Augie was a good man, a good husband, a good father, and a good Soldier. He will be greatly missed by the members of the CTC, the Downing community, and the Army at large.
During this tragic time, our thoughts are with the entire Gonzalez family. Augie’s wife, Melissa, and sons, Nick and Gabe, will always be a part of the CTC family, and we remain forever grateful for their family’s service to the nation.
Rest in Peace Augie, Noelle, and Gwen.
