Ervin Lewis Austin was translated into the arms of his Savior, Jesus Christ, February 27th, leaving with the same dignity that marked his life for 96 years. Ervin’s wife, of 53 years, Barbara Dibble Austin preceded him 21 years ago.
He leaves, still in this realm, his two sons, Steven & Curtis Austin, his daughter-in-law, Jana Austin, 5 granddaughters and 5 great grandchildren.
After serving in the Army Air Corp in the South Pacific and a short career in minor league baseball, he spent nearly 40 years with the New York Life Insurance Company. He relocated to start and grow what would soon become the very successful Palo Alto General Office. After retirement, he continued in community service, golf and travel.
All are cordially invited to a memorial service to be held, March 15th at 2:00pm at Alta Mesa Funeral Home, Palo Alto.
