Austin will be greatly missed. We looked forward to our office visits that resulted in discussing politics, hunting, fishing, his lovely wife, daughters, and grandchildren. His entertaining stories would bring laughter as he leaned back in his chair grinning ear to ear. He loved and was so proud of his family. Austin was also a loyal friend. Our hearts and prayers are with the Sheheen family.

Mr. Austin Sheheen was a fine southern gentleman and will be greatly missed. On our annual visits to Mr. Sheheen for more than 50 years, he enjoyed sharing news about his family which always brought a bright smile to his face and an extra sparkle in his eyes. His expertise in countless areas was of tremendous benefit to our family for three generations. What a legacy he has left. We remember him with deepest respect and highest esteem. His wife, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren are in our thoughts and prayers.
