Timothy Austin Blair, a beloved son and brother, died on Saturday night, November 29, 2008, near his home.
Austin left a legacy in his 14 short years on this earth. He will always be remembered for his compassion for others, his loving spirit, and for having the heart of a volunteer. Austin was a freshman at Ohio County High School, where he loved to be with his friends, to learn new things, and to volunteer.
He was a member of OCHS Band, OC Drug Free, Youth Advisory Council, and donated his time at the animal shelter, the library, and was selected to shadow in ER at Ohio County Hospital.
He followed the passions of his parents, raising money for Relay For Life and by becoming a Jr Firefighter for Beaver Dam Fire & Rescue. Austin was a member of Beaver Dam Baptist church and proud to be a Christian. He loved all sports, especially baseball, starting at the early age of 3. He was currently in training for MMA Wrestling.
Austin is survived by his loving parents, Tim and Heather Blair of Beaver Dam and by his little brother, Noah.
In 2008, my world as I knew it changed forever, with the sudden loss of our 14 year old son, Austin. My life's journey after was bumpy and tearful. With God's gentle nudging, I began challenging myself to find the JOY in every day, despite the sadness I still felt.
While I'll never forget Austin, I know this is something he would want for me. I love and miss him daily but I'm living my life to honor him - and celebrating every moment it brings. My goal...to find and share the joy in every day. Thanks for JOYning me!
