It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our loving husband, father and grandfather. Austin passed away peacefully at Foothills Medical Centre on Wednesday, May 30, 2007 after a long and bravely fought illness. It is a comfort to know he now rests in peace with our heavenly Father.
Austin is lovingly remembered by his wife Clare; his daughter and son-in-law Michelle and Andrew; his sons and daughter-in-law Paul and Brenda, and James; and his grandchildren Scotch, Triana, Christa and Nolan. In New Zealand Austin is loved and fondly remembered by his mother Ellen; his four siblings; and many nieces, nephews and cousins, also from Australia and the United States.
Austin was predeceased by his father James Martin and his son Sean.
