My Don had happy memories of going to Austin and Christine's on Sundays and my girls always looked forward to when Austin arrived at Pop's birthday parties. I know he was a Easton not a Clements but he had those happy dancing eyes of the Clements men. What a wonderful man, God bless him.

Joanne, Mike, Jimmy,Larry and Lisa, I am so sorry for your loss of such a wonderful father and a wonderful uncle to me. He took good care of me when I was little and I will remember our joking around for the rest of my life. Austin was a great baseball player and I remember him and my Dad playing donkey baseball at the Scottsville baseball diamond. Austin took care of everyone he knew, even strangers as a volunteer fireman for many years. He will be missed. I love you guys.
