Austin played football for Andover Central High School and graduated in 2012. He loved making anyone and everyone laugh and could do so with ease. He loved conversations about anything from philosophy to the latest in professional sports. Most could not keep up with his witty banter amongst his brothers, chalked full of inside jokes and obscure movie quotes. He was the light of every room he walked into and his presence never went unnoticed. If he were able to give one last farewell, it would likely be from his brothers' and his favorite movie Bill and Ted..."Be excellent to each other." and "Party on, dudes."
Visitation will be one hour prior to the service. Funeral service 2pm Friday, August 30, at East Point Church of Christ, 747 North 127th Street East, Wichita. Graveside service will follow in Lakeview Cemetery, Wichita.
