Austin McEwen died tragically when the Edwardsville tornado destroyed the Amazon distribution facility where he worked.
Austin was a delightful soul, adored by all who met him. He had an awesome grin and gave huge, warm embraces. He was a skilled baseball and hockey player. He adored the outside and his hunting canines. He moved on from Vatterott College with a degree in mechanics. He was persevering, kind and will be profoundly missed. He was taken from this world very soon.
He is survived by his loving Mother, Father, his long time girlfriend Sara, his close-knit extended family, and countless friends.
