Mr Austin was one of my favorite clients. Working with him, as well as with Stewart, Sharon and Diane, has been a privilege and honor. What a wonderful family.

My fondest memories of Mr Austin were our in depth conversations about the Stock Market and the capital markets. I also loved hearing about his career in the Air Force and the NYC Transit Authority.
I have a tremendous amount of respect for him as person, father, grandfather, uncle and family man. My thoughts and prayers are with the Austin family.
