Austin Filby was a friendly man who enjoyed playing card games, such as solitaire, rummy and hearts. He also took great pleasure in playing bingo. The Austin Lewis Filby Memorial Fund was created through Mr. Filby’s estate, with the support of the Board of County Commissioners for Frederick County and the Frederick County Department of Aging, to support bingo and birthday celebrations conducted by the Frederick County Department of Aging for the people it serves.
