It's likely a misspelling of Ausencio, male form of Ausencia, which means Absence. For a Spaniard, Ausencio and Aucencio are pronounced differently, but for Latin American Spanish speakers, c, z and s are both read alike so it's common to find American versions of Spanish given names and last names with the cs and zs jumbled up.
