Austin was such a gentleman. I played beside him in the Lindsay Salvation Army Band. I don’t know the family other than Shirley. I would just like the family to know he was such a nice guy. We had a few laughs. He really loved playing his euphonium. I will miss him.

So sorry on the loss of Austin. I remember the times they came to mom and dad's house for cards and visits, all the times Austin and my dad traveled together for band. My thoughts are with you Shirley and the whole family. He was a great man.
