Tara and Ashley, I am so sorry to hear of your wonderful father's passing. He was always so welcoming and sweet to your friends. You could not help but smile when you were around him. Tara, I remember him having a ball at your lovely wedding in Chatham. Big hugs coming to y'all from Atlanta, Ga.

I worked at Cowden Manufacturing in the 70's in the main office and I have fond memories of Austin. The obituary described him very well. He was always the gentleman and always the light in the room. Sorry to read of his passing yet joyful to hear he had such a good life and wonderful retirement. My condolences to the family. Thank you for posting the notice.
Austin was one of the best friends I ever had in the business. We worked together for over 20 years. I always enjoyed his companionship and will miss him dearly.
Though I did not know Austin, he sounds like a wonderful person. We never recover from the loss of loved ones... and we shouldn't....However as the well written remembrance suggests, raise a glass and celebrate his life.... I know I will. (Thanks to Janie Michler from our Henry Clay days for informing us). Peace to you all.
Ashlee, Tara, & Jane
So Sorry to hear about your dad and husband He was always so friendly any time i was in your home. My thoughts and prayers are with you
So sorry about your loss. Mr. Owens was a special person. I have many fond memories serving him at Lex. Country Club. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Bill Letton (former bartender at LCC from 1973-1985)
Jane: Austin was always the life of the party wheather it was on the golf course or elsewhere. I will miss him. He was always a good friend.
Dear Ashlee, Tara and Jane,
I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your dad and husband. I have wonderful memories of spending many nights and weekends in your home during my childhood. I always looked up to Mr. Owen and thought very highly of him. He was the definition of class. Cheers to a life well lived!
Dear Jane and girls, Larry and I were so sad to read of Austin's passing in early Dec. The obituary described him well, he was always so kind, a happy-go-lucky kind of neighbor. We had many wonderful years with you all on Lannette Lane. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family at this difficult time. Love, Fran and Larry
Jane, I am so sorry for your great loss.May you find at least a little comfort in knowing that old friends remember and care.
