Grandfather emigrated to USA from Croatia

Interesting familiar story about his grandfather who emigrated from Croatia to USA c. 1920 eventually settling in San Pedro where he raised his family of three children and was a cook at Goodfellas (grill & bar).

Lifelong resident of San Pedro, where his family has lived for close to 100 years, Augie is  authentic 100% Croatian descent.  He graduated from Mary Star of the Sea High School and University of Southern California. He works as Community Affairs Advocate for Community Relations Division at the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) as the.  He serves as a liaison between the various communities surrounding the POLA, and throughout Southern California; and community leaders and business stakeholders to identify programs to educate and promote the Port as a regional community partner and major economic asset. 

He’s happily married to beauty Lynn (nee Stecker – aunt of Joshua Stecker/publisher San Pedro Today). They’re often out and about at community functions, strolling at 1st Thursday, always in good spirits.
