Founded in memory of Cpl. Austin R. Meehan

04/07/80 - 07/12/20

Austin was an amazing man who always had a smile on his face.  A dedicated son, brother, husband, father, and friend, his absence leaves a gaping hole in the lives of everyone who ever had the good fortune of meeting him.  A kind man, who always put the needs of others before his own, Austin was known to help others through his church and participate in charity runs -- especially for veterans causes.

Austin served in the US Marine Corps. from 1999-2003 and served overseas during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
