Austin Goodrich Memorial

41273426_1565620752378306_r.jpegAfter Austin’s unexpected passing, his family will be dealing with the financial expenses of funeral costs, medical expenses, etc. Being self-employed is difficult in situations like these because if you do not work, you do not get paid. We want Austin’s family to be able to take the time they need to grieve before having to return to work without having to worry about financial problems on top of getting used to their lives without Austin. Money collected will also be put towards a memorial bench to place by the river, which was Austin’s favorite place. Thank you in advance for your support during this difficult time.
This beautiful life of Austin Goodrich: Austin loved the great outdoors, fishing, hunting, the river, and snowmobiling. Austin loves to fly and dreamed of becoming a pilot one day! Austin loved music and loved to make music with his many guitars. He could listen to a song and then teach himself how to play it! Austin loved to be in motion and always had a plan!! He was nothing short of creative and brilliant, if it couldn’t be done Austin would figure out how to make it work! Austin did not judge anyone and could always see the good in others. Even in the most intense situations Austin would rise above it and create the calm in it all. Austin was always creating with his brilliant mind. He was nothing short of resilient, he was adventurous, determined, and charismatic about life. He was easy to talk with and had a movie star charm. His energy was contagious and he had such a “good vibe”. His presence would light up any room! Austin was spontaneous, fearless and always looking for something to do! If you REALLY knew Austin he loved his sweets! Anyone that had the pleasure of knowing Austin or even spent any time with him left with a gift of unforgettable memories!!

My name is Faith Vinzant, I am from Ankeny, and I have been friends with the Goodrich family for 16 years through Zac and my older brother racing motocross together. This money will be used for Austins family in his funeral costs, medical expenses, and a memorial bench.  I will be delivering all of the following money to Austins family.
