Jay August Nuedling


Jay August Nuedling, age 63, of Buford, Ga., passed away peacefully at his home on Thursday, April 12, 2018.  

He was born on June 30, 1954, in Port Washington, the son of August “Dutch” Frederick and Irene Nuedling.  

He is survived by his siblings Jean (Ken) Klopp, Kim (Pat) Tilka, and Richard (Maria) Nuedling.  

He graduated from Port Washington High School in 1972 and attended the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater on a cross-country running scholarship. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in human resources management.

He went on to follow in his father’s footsteps as a painter with his business partner and buddy Dan VanNus.  

He and his wife Maria wed in 1979 and were married for 38 years.  

He is survived by Maria, as well as their two children, Sean August (Mckenzie) and Erin (Michael) Huegerich. Jay was blessed with and thoroughly enjoyed his six grandchildren, Knox, 5, Wake August, 4,  Mila, 4, Pike, 4, James, 1, and Emmi Jaye, 1.  

Some called him Jay, some “Jay Bird,” some “Jay Jay,”some may even call him “Smelt," but if you met him even once you would call him a friend. The phrase “he’d do anything for anybody” gets thrown around a lot, but this phrase truly embodies Jay’s character.

A relentlessly hard worker, wise spirit and life of the party, Jay certainly left his mark on those who had the pleasure of knowing him. We all looked up to him and we are honored to be in the wake of his legacy.  

He loved the Packers, running, tennis, cards and “Yahtzee Baby,” and shamelessly took anybody’s money in poker.  

To say he will be missed is an understatement. To say he was loved can only be understood by knowing the unconditional love he gave.

“…And the greatest of these is love” 1 Corinthians 13:13

A visitation was held Saturday, April 14, at Flanigan Funeral Home in Burford, Ga.
