John Charles Auseon, MD (Res Grad) (1942-2013) 

 

Dr. John Charles Auseon, physician, devoted husband and father, beloved "Papa," died unexpectedly Tuesday, October 1, 2013. Dr. Auseon.jpg

He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Jeanie Coy Auseon; his sons, Alex (Gita Punwani), Andrew (Sarah Zogby), and Anthony (Molly); and granddaughters, Samara, Tess, Eloise, Ramona, and Frances. He leaves behind his brother Tim (Barbara); nieces, nephews; and a close-knit extended family.

John was born March 19, 1942, in Hillsdale, Michigan. His parents, Charles and Nadyne, provided a loving home. As a child, he accompanied his father, a physician, on house calls in rural Michigan. They were often joined by a family dog. The medical profession and canine companionship were integral parts of his life.

John was four years old when he began to play golf, a sport that would bring him joy throughout his life. He won several club championships as a teenager, and numerous college championships. Named to the NAIA All-American Golf Team in 1962, he was the only Hillsdale College student to have reached All-American status in golf. In recognition of his achievements, he was inducted into the Hillsdale College Athletic Hall of Fame in 2003.

During 1963-1967, John attended the Kirksville College of Osteopathy in Kirksville, Missouri. There he met a young college student named Jeanie Coy. The two were married in 1967.

A Vietnam veteran, John served his country, and was stationed in Long Binh, Vietnam, where he served the 62nd Engineer Battalion as Battalion Surgeon, earning the Bronze Star, among other commendations.

John's medical career in the Columbus area spanned 40 years. He spent his residency at Doctors Hospitals, followed by a Cardiology fellowship at the Ohio State University Hospital. In 1976, he was instrumental in establishing Doctors Hospitals' first Cardiac Catherization Lab and went on to cofound the cardiology practice Central Ohio Cardiovascular Consultants. Over the years, John taught as an adjunct professor at the Ohio University School of Osteopathic Medicine, and was the President of Staff at Doctors Hospitals. He was recognized for his exemplary mentorship of young physicians. For several years he served on the board of the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations and on the Board of Trustees for the OhioHealth healthcare system.

John will be remembered for many things, among them his integrity, giving nature, and considerate wisdom. He had a ready sense of humor, and was quick to laugh at himself. He was a lover of travel and the outdoors-fishing, hiking, and golfing-a friend to animals, especially dogs. However, his deepest love was for his family-his wife, sons, daughters-in-law, and the five young granddaughters whom he adored.

His was a life well lived, and he will be missed by many. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in John's memory to the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations, or the Salvation Army.
