Austin James Thompson, age 24 of Cuyahoga Falls, died too soon on Friday, April 26, 2019. His family is blessed to have spent 24 years with Austin and wishes to honor his life as a son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend.
Born May 18, 1994, Austin enjoyed hunting, fishing, and ATV riding with his dad. He loved sports including football, baseball, snowboarding, and weightlifting. Austin was proud to have earned his black belt in Taekwondo. Most of all, he loved riding his GSX-R600 motorcycle.
His huge muscles, beautiful smile, and kind heart will be especially missed by his sisters, Morgan and Bailey. They called him their big brother, protector, and teddy bear. They both melted his heart.
Austin was a believer in Jesus Christ. His favorite Bible verse was Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Beautifully tattooed on his shoulder was: “All for the glory of God” from 1 Corinthians 10:31. His heart was true, and his love for his family was pure and deep.
We will love you forever and always, Austin, until we see you again!
Austin was preceded in death by his grandparents, Andrew Mitzo and Beatrice (Skowronski) Mitzo. He is survived by his mother, Kim (Mitzo) Thompson; father, Scott R. Thompson; sisters, Morgan and Bailey; his amazing dog, Diesel; grandparents, James E. Thompson and Jean (Averill) Thompson; aunt, Karen (Mitzo) Hilderbrand; uncle, Jimmy Thompson; cousins, Tyler Hilderbrand and Andrew Mitzo; and many other family and friends.
