Austin Robert Schwartz was born March 18, 1998 in Sturgis Michigan. He was one of a kind from day one with his white blonde hair and dimples. He was a passionate and loud child from day one. His family realized early on that Austin was as ornery as he was sweet. He was never mistreated because his Jordan and his Jacqueline would always protect him. However, he did learn to hold his own when he needed to.
From a very young age Austin knew how to talk to God. He prayed with power and authority covering everything he could think of even when it was just for the food. He never knew a stranger and had a deep heart of compassion, love and loyalty for everyone. Austin could see into people's lives and recognize their needs. He would do whatever necessary to meet those needs.
Austin was loved by everyone around him except a few teachers who didn’t appreciate his sense of humor or the loudness of his voice. He was never afraid to let everyone know what he thought. He was always upbeat and smiley. He was a beautiful soul with a positive outlook. Even when he was doing something he knew he shouldn't, he thoroughly enjoyed himself. Austin was the life of the party and liked to rile things up.
Austin tried to lift up others and stand strong. He worked as hard as he played and always did his best. He excelled in his craft and worked for the Carpenters Union. He was promoted
to a foreman's position at the age of 23. He had a passion for life and adventure. He loved collecting things like guns, bottles, Football helmets and jerseys. He loved the Denver Broncos, cooking, guns, and his dogs.
More than anything Austin loved his family and friends. There was no baby he wouldn’t hold or steal at a function. He loved his family wholeheartedly and was the best son, brother, cousin, nephew, uncle and grandson anyone could ask for.
Austin passed away March 7, 2022 at his home. The hole left in our hearts is huge, but we must go on loving as Austin did. Austin is preceded in death by his Grandma Pattie and cousin Curtis. He is survived by grandparents Ed and Sharon Schwartz, Bruce and Allyson Brim; father Jason and Heather Schwartz; mother Carlene and Clint Klinksick; brother Jordan (Breanna) and sister Jacqueline (Gavin). He was blessed with bonus brothers Zach (Constance), Matt and Tyler and bonus sisters Elizabeth, Alexis, Ashton, and Katherine. He also had 11 nieces and nephews which he loved very much.
