Austin Brown Fund

Austin loved helping people -- be it serving on missions with his church, helping with the Hamilton Swim & Dive Team, or lending a hand to anyone in need.

Austin was a hard worker -- he was never afraid to put his back & muscle into anything to help out.

Austin had no fear -- whether it was diving from a cliff in Lake Superior, or jumping 30' into the Kalamazoo River, he never backed down.

Austin loved to read -- anywhere and any time.

Austin was a 3-year All State Diver with Hamilton High School, and was set and ready to join the WSU Swim & Dive team as a Warrior.

Austin will always be remembered as our loving son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, uncle, and friend. He joined our Lord and Savior in Heaven July 21, 2019.  

During this time the family is asking for any donations possible to help with funeral expenses and headstone. Money raised will go to Austin and his memory. All remaining funds raised beyond the funeral expenses will go directly to help cover medical expenses for the female passenger In the accident. Family and friends will manage all funds received for Austin's family during this difficult time. Thank you, and God Bless.
