Austin grew up in Shelby County. He attended Joaquin ISD and graduated with the Class of 2012. He was a proud member of the Joaquin Ram Football team and was known as the “Gentle Giant.” He was a fierce competitor on the field, but out of uniform he had a true heart of gold. He really liked attending Word of Faith in Joaquin with his friends. Austin was a hard-working young man that worked in the oil and gas industry on pipelines. While he did not have a lot of spare time off from work, when he did, he was surrounded by family and friends. Austin loved his family and treasured those moments spent around camp fires and just talking. He might show up at his aunts and uncles homes at any moment just to catch up. He also had a great time riding four-wheelers and mud-hogging. Never a negative word was spoken when Austin’s name came up. Everyone in the community knew him as a genuine and caring young man. He was selfless. He never worried about himself but always put others and their needs above his own. He even sent money to random churches and other organizations he would attend while off working just to help out. He was the purest soul you would ever meet.

Austin is survived by his mother, Tammy Diane Redmon of Timpson; father and step-mother, Barrett and Jeneva Underbrink of Center; brothers, Shaquille Ingram of Center and Dakota Ingram of Timpson; sisters, Kaylee Underbrink of Center, Chelsey Windham and husband, Son of Huxley, Mikaela Stone and fiancé, Patrick of Center, and Laela York and husband, Corey of Center; maternal grandparents, Joy Lynn Redmon of Center and Verl Redmon of Center; paternal grandfather, Urban Underbrink, III of Center; maternal great-grandmother, Johnnie Cassell of Center; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

He is preceded in death by his uncle, Jason Eli Redmon, great uncle, Jerald Goings, and paternal grandmother, Susan Sanford and paternal great-grandfather, Howell Cassell.

Pallbearers will be Chase Baker, Jeff Estes, Robby Dutton, Tyler McSwain, Lance Lawson, Skyler Gilpatrick, Hayden Ferguson, Dalton Willis, Jamie Carroll, and Justin Underbrink. Honorary pallbearers are Kurstan Underbrink and Joseph LeBlanc.
