Austin was my brother Doug's best friend since they were kids. I didn't know Austin that well since the guys were 10 years older than I, but I remember he was always kind to me even though I was only "the little sister." The world has lost a good one.

So shocked and saddened by Austin´s death. He was a beloved son, brother, husband , father, and friend. He was like my brother growing up. I was always with the Rainwaters, Eileen being my best friend in our childhood and Mr. and Mrs. Rainwaters always encouraging me in my endeavors and music. With our deepest sympathy to Frankie, Eileen, Marshall and his children.

Best friend for over 65 years. We grew up together- fishing, hunting, and roaming the woods in our area. He was my best man and I was his at our weddings. We have stayed in touch all these years. A better friend cannot be had. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
