He graduated from Fisher High School, in Lafitte, Louisiana, with the class of 1975. Shortly after graduation, David married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Robin Perrin Austin. Together they have spent the last forty-seven years raising their beautiful family.
David pursued many interests, some of which included gardening, mowing the grass, and spending time with his grandchildren.

Austin, Jr. He leaves behind to cherish his loving memory his wife Robin of Ames, Texas; his daughters Sarah Griffin and husband Gabriel of Florence, Mississippi, and Stacy Dominguez and husband Roberto of Ames, Texas; his grandchildren Dakota Griffin of Colorado, Joshua Riche and Gabrielle Griffin both of Florence, Mississippi, Hannah and Jude Dominguez both of Ames, Texas; his sisters Betty Encalade of Barataria, Louisiana, Patricia St. Philips of McComb, Mississippi; his brother Dennis Austin of McComb, Mississippi; his numerous nieces and nephews; and a host of other loving relatives and friends.
