A memorial service will be held for Jeff R. Austin on April 21, 2012 at Rock Springs Baptist Church, in Morrow. Austin passed away on March 22, 2012. The family will receive visitors at 11 a.m., and the service will begin at 12 p.m.

Jeff was preceded in death by his father, John L. Austin, Jr., and his brother, Rick Austin.

He leaves behind a loving mother, Loretta Austin; two daughters, Tammy and Beth, and their spouses; a son, Robert; four grandchildren; two brothers; three sisters-in-law; a sister and brother-in-law; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

There is no way to think of Jeff without remembering his great gift for storytelling, which often centered around those friends he held so dear. His passing has left a great void in our lives here, and a longing for that day when the family is gathered once more as one. Until then, Jeff, you are ever in our hearts.
