      The Buffalo News, May 4, 2000
      August F.

He was born in North Tonawanda and lived on Stenzel Avenue. He attended the former Gratwick Grammar School there as well. Strassburg worked for several years in production at the former Buffalo Bolt Co., North Tonawanda, and as an inspector at the former Bell Aircraft here. A veteran of World War II, he entered the U.S. Army Air Forces in 1942 and served as a machinist with the 893rd Air Engineer Squadron in the European Theater until honorably discharged in 1946. Strassburg then worked as a millwright at DuPont, retiring in the mid-1970's. He was a lifelong member of St. Mark Evangelical Lutheran Church, North Tonawanda, and was an airplane and air show enthusiast. His wife, the former Violet R. Mellenthine, died in 1978. Survivors include two sons, Terry A. of North Tonawanda and Gary D. of Niagara Falls; four grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. Services will be held at 1:30 P.M.
