Beyond his professional endeavors, Augustin had a zest for life that was unwavering. He found solace in fishing trips where he could immerse himself in the serenity of nature. As an avid fan of the Dallas Cowboys, he would eagerly gather with friends and family during game days to cheer on his beloved team.

Augustin's children - Augustin Gaitan Jr., Bianca Gaitan, and Daniella Gaitan - were the pride and joy of his life. He watched them grow into remarkable individuals with admiration and unwavering support. He encouraged their dreams while instilling within them values of compassion, perseverance, and gratitude. His legacy lives on through their lives as well as through his grandchildren, Dani Zae Valdez and David Andrew Valdez III who he cherished since the moment they were born.
Augustin was a beloved son, cherished by his parents Amado Gaitan Sr. and Dominga Gaitan. He was blessed to have a large and loving family, including his brothers - Amado Gaitan Jr., Gilbert Gaitan, Adam Gaitan, Daniel Gaitan, and Elvis Gaitan - and sisters - Linda Gaitan, Elizabeth Carrillo, Dominga Andrade, and Susie Gaitan. Their bond was unbreakable, marked by endless love, support, and shared memories.
