Darrell Glenn Auginash, "Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig", which means Hole in the Day, age 61, of Bemidji, entered heaven, his place of eternal rest on Tuesday, September 1, 2015 at the Sanford Hospital in Bemidji with his family by his side. He was born on December 16, 1953 in Red Lake the son of McKinley W., Sr. and Marcella (Johnson) Auginash.

Darrell loved playing the Moccasin Game with his late father Mac. He was an avid outdoors man. He loved hunting, fishing, trapping, and ricing. Darrell was very proud of the 28 point buck got one year and also of winning the Red Lake Buck Tournament last year. He would take his skill of hunting and teach others his knowledge. He wrote a book called Seasons of Ojibwe and made calendars to help others with the changing of seasons. Darrell was a member and believer in Christ. He traveled all over the USA and his favorite trip was to "The Holy Land", Jerusalem. He attended the Oak Hills Bible College and used his ministries to reach out to many people. One of Darrell's outreach was to the children who didn't have a father. He would take them under his wing, mentor and care for them. In 2007 he and his wife Corky made the Walk of Forgiveness which started from McGregor and ended in Red Cliff, WI. This walk was made for the healing and forgiveness of nations because of the Sandy Lake tragedy. All bands from the local area participated in this walk. Darrell achieved a two year carpentry degree and with that he built many homes for the Red Lake Nation. He was also able to design and build his dream home a beautiful eight sided log cabin for he and his wife Corky. Darrell touched a lot of lives throughout his life and his feedback was that some say he saved their lives. He and his knowledge will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

The family that Darrell joins again are his parents; McKinley and Marcella, paternal grandparents; Fred and Jeanette Auginash, maternal grandparents; Joseph W. and Susan Johnson, one sister; Ardell Tikayne, and three infant children.

Those he leaves behind to cherish his memory are his wife; Corky Auginash of Bemidji, brothers; Fred (Bridget) Auginash of Redby, and McKinley (Phyllis) Auginash, Jr. of Redby, sisters; Roxanne (Darrell) Johnson of Redby, Mary (Tom) Charnoski of Redby, Susan Auginash of Duluth, and Trudy (Darryl) Kingbird of Redby, special daughters; Ruth Stokes and Rose Atkinson, special friends; Gary Sargent and Steve Hanson, special nieces; Tanya Auginash and December Jo, and special nephew; Chad Auginash.
