To the Drakes...The world has lost a great man. I have been honor to grow up on the same street with the Drakes. It was today that I found out his first name. We always referred to him as "Mr. Drake" He would have a smile on his face everytime you seen him. I still can remember those dogs barking in the back. So many memories. May the love of G-d carry your family at this time.

Our deepest sympathy is sent to you - Auntie Yvette, Gail and Diane.

I will always remember Uncle Austin for his jokes, smile and especially his tricks.

I remember him telling me how he made Diane disappear and appeared in another room and I was just there looking at him like 'really now'. All that time he was so serious and convincing.

Continue to hang in there.

Michelle, Martina and Mencha

Austin to the rescue-

Shared by Susanne Spear on February 16, 2014

The first time I met Austin I was driving into my parents driveway . I had tears streaming down my face when I got out of my car and I saw the nicest man standing in the driveway. Austin introduced himself to me right away and asked me what was wrong. I said I backed my car into a cement post and put a huge dent into the side bumper. I said my husband is going to be so upset since it was a brand new car. Austin gave me a hug and said don't worry, he then proceeded to the side of the house wear he got a large piece of wood and something to hammer with. He quickly slid underneath my car to bang the dent out. I couldn't stop thanking him. He just gave me the biggest smile and I gave him a hug. From that day on, I would see Austin at my parents house regularly. He was very close to my Dad who at that point was in his ninties and my Mother in her eighties. My Dad said he was like a son to him. He was also close to my younger brother John who lived with my parents and took care of them. When John was very sick with cancer he worried about who would take care of things around the house. Austin told him not to worry that he would make sure they were okay. Austin kept that promise until my parents passed away and he always helped me with anything I needed when cleaning out my parents house. Austin was one of the kindest and most caring gentleman I have ever known. I wish there were more people like Austin in the world. He will be dearly missed. I love you Austin, I hope you are resting in peace now. Your beautiful wife and two beautiful daughters were very blessed to have you in their lives. The memories you gave eveyone will live on with us for the rest of our lives. Thank you Austin for being in my life!!!
