Keith Austin's Burial Expenses

Keith Austin was my only brother and the only other son to Earl and Joyce Austin and the only brother to Savonya. He was one of the KINDEST people that you could EVER know.  He was hard working and always had a free spirited mind. Keithie, like most of us, did some thngs in life that, if he thought differently about them at the time, he probably would not have done them-such is life.  He more than made up for it by the love he showed to his family-ESPECIALLY to our mom, Joycie!! 

Keith was ANOTHER "Genuine Austin".

Keith definitely had the Austin spirit; God fearing and kind and a giving person, and he lived his life in a VERY private way.  He was such a HUMBLE man that he would be SOOOO upset that we had to even make this page.

SERIOUSLY!! Keith wouldn't want this...not at all. But we have to appeal to your sentiments...

We are asking for donations to help cover the cost of his funeral. Keith tragically lost his life on November 20, 2017 in an in home accident in Washington, DC.  and unfortunately, he did not have ANY life insurance. Please help us give him a beautiful homegoing service; Dad wants to have him buried next to our beloved mom in Virginia Beach.

UPDATE: December 7th:  We will bury Keith in Virginia Beach on Saturday, December 9th contigent upon all funds being available to both the funeral home and burial site. I will send an update as to the time and location by mid morning December 7th

Any amount that you can donate will be appreciated. 

THANK YOU in advance!!!
The funds will be managed by me, his brother, Brian Austin.

PS For those who cannot attend the service, I will plan a date in January for a Family Memorial Service. I apologize for so much confusion. I am truly sorry to burden anyone, especially during the Holiday season.
