Joseph “Joe” Austin

Aged 51 Years 16.12.1958-02.08.2010

St. Mary’s Anglican Church, St. Mary’s was overflowing on Tuesday 10th August, 2010 when family members & friends alike attended the farewell service for Joseph Austin, more affectionately known as “Joe”. Joe’s service was officiated by Rev. David Clarke.

Memories were spoken by family, friends & colleagues of the fun times, love & laughter that Joe shared with them all..

Music that depicted Joe was played & in particular the song chosen for reflection time ”Heaven was needing a Hero” was very apt for him..

A man that loved life, his family, in particular his wife Cheryll, his work & his friends, Joe will never be forgotten for he has touched too many lives and so many people are richer for knowing him..

  11. I met cheryl in the 1980s when she was a patientin neapen hospital.
    As a nurse i took a shine to her and we have become friends.sharing the joys and sorrows of life.
    She was over the moon when she met Joe.Here was a dashing man who loved her for herself and at last she found the happiness she had beeen yearning for for a long time.
    Joe seemed to lift her wings as the saying goes. There was so much love there that i was jealous.
    MY hear t goes out to cheryll. I know that she is a stong peron but all of you that live near by please keep in contact with her.
    Joe will be missed by everyone he touched . he was a gentle man and a gentleman
