Alfred G Austin \n\nOctober 14, 1929 - July 25, 2018\n\n \n\nIt is with great sadness that the family of Alfred G Austin announces his passing on Wednesday July 25th, 2018 at the age of 88.\n\nFred was born in Prescott, AZ in 1929. He later found the love of his life and married Lupe Sanchez in 1950. The couple lived in Bagdad where they raised their family, and Fred continued to enjoy his 35 year long career in mill operations for the mine. After retiring in 1985, Fred and Lupe moved to Wickenburg. In the years after retirement Fred enjoyed dabbling with computers, working on projects late into the night, and passionately expressing his political views with his family and the local community.\n\nAfter the passing of Lupe in early 2006, Fred was blessed with finding another love. He and Betty Jane Brown married in 2009, and spent the last 9 years together creating a new circle of loving family and friends.\n\nFred will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 9 years, Betty Jane Brown-Austin, his sisters Maria and Ramona, his brother Junior, his sons Ed (Meg) and Dave (Patsy) Austin, and by his seven grandchildren April (Jason), Heather (Tom), Sonja (John), Michelle (Jeff), Christopher (Teyah), Steven and Miranda. Fred will also be fondly remembered by his many nieces, nephews, great grandchildren, extended family and dear friends.\n\nReaching heaven before him, waiting to once again embrace him was his wife of 56 years, Lupe Austin, his sons Freddie and Steven Austin, and his mother Frances Hernandez.\n\nIn lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Stroke Association or American Heart Association. \n\nServices will be held in Wickenburg on Friday, August 10th at 10:00 am, at the St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, located at 232 N Tegner Street, Wickenburg AZ. Lunch will follow in the Catholic hall next door.
