Erich John Aust, 72, of Marlborough passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 5th, 2013, after a final battle with cancer of which he was a five year survivor. Born in Mallets Bay, VT on July 16, 1940 son of the late Rudolph and Alice Aust, he was predeceased almost a year ago by his loving wife of 45 years, Patricia H. Aust.

Erich graduated from Cranston High School in 1958 and was a regular high school reunion attendee. After high school he joined the United States Air Force and studied Chinese at Yale University and became an interpreter stationed overseas. He graduated from Central State University and pursued a career in computer programming. He ended up working for Aetna in Hartford CT for 30+ years.

His final job was working for the State of CT as an insurance examiner - a job where he made many, many new friends. After he retired he served on the AHM Youth Board and volunteered as the Treasury Secretary for the Marlborough Congregational Church and sang in the choir. Erich loved to garden. Plants from his yard will live on in friends' and family's gardens all across the east coast.
