Austin had an unbelievable energy. You rarely seen him without a smile on his face and if you were upset, it wouldn't be long and you would be smiling too. Austin always had a quick come back or something funny to say, especially in awkward moments when you just needed to laugh. He was just a naturally funny guy.

Austin was loyal and he stood up for what he believed in and he never backed down from a fight. He stood up and defended those he cared about and those who needed it, he didn't even have to know you well. He would haven given you the shirt off his back or the last dollar in his pocket and never thought twice about it.

Austin was honest. He would listen with a caring and open heart, without judgment.. but, He knew life was tough and he would loving had you a dose of truth and reality when you needed it.

Austin rarely met a stranger and if you were lucky enough to have had Austin call you a friend, then you knew you had a friend that considered you family and you knew that came with his love and protection anytime and anywhere. He was tough, but he wore his heart on his sleeve. To truly know him, was to love him.

Family meant the world to him. He loved his momma and his brothers and sisters and neice Bella and nephews Kohlston and Braesyn with all he had. He always had a hug and was never stingy with the words "I love you." He was a wonderful son, brother, uncle and grandson.

Austin was the most loyal and caring person I’ve ever met. He was my best friend and I knew if I ever needed ANYTHING he was the person to call, and vice versa. I always felt safe when he was around because I knew he would never let anything happen to me.
I’ll never forget driving around, sad because my grandpa was sick. He turned on the song Ms. Jackson by OutKast and started singing and dancing to cheer me up. He always knew how to turn my bad days into good days. He’s one of a kind, and he’s definitely irreplaceable. I’ll never forget you, Austy. Watch over me, and watch over your family during these tough times.

Austin was smart, passion, and kind. He always made me feel comfortable in our friend group. I met him through mutual friends when we were like 17. He always protected his friends, especially any females, and always listened if you needed to talk. He always wanted to have a good time and make sure those around him did too. To his family: If you need anything at all, please contact me. Austin and I weren’t very close but I’ve known him for a long time and we typically catch up every few years. He was an amazing person. You should be very proud of him.
Austin: Thank you for being my friend and taking care of everyone in the group. When we met again one day, I’ll updated you on how everyone’s doing. Watch over us man.

I knew you when you were younger and I always love your energy. You were always smiling. I remember you not being afraid of doing or trying new things. I remember how you and Destiny would get in outside fire pit and play. Your and Destiny's birthday parties. We are all sad that you are no longer with us to watch you grow into the man we all know you would have become. I didn't get a chance to know you as an adult but I know you would have been a good husband to someone special . You would have been good dad and uncle and brother and son. Even though we were not close I still loved you my sweet nephew and you will be missed dearly. Rest in peace God is with you
