RIP Sir! I life well lived.


A moment taken to acknowledge the life of a person known by name but did so much to change the landscape around him. Countless jobs offered for others to enjoy their lives as well. Struggles and triumphs... well done sir.


I was working at A-dec, when my wife and I married, in 1978. The Austin's were wonderful to work for, and exemplary community icons.
