Austen Trent De Sousa was 27 years old and a resident of Bishop, CA for 22 years. He was born in Montclair, CA on August 16, 1993 and left us on November 14, 2020.
Austen was a wild man always pushing the boundaries of typical. He was a proud father, a son, a brother, cousin, an uncle, a nephew, and loyal and compassionate friend. He was the kindest and most loving young man just looking for some answers to this confusing life. He was committed to what he knew and his beliefs, standing tall to his morals however unconventional some may have thought.
Austen was a grandma’s boy, his mama’s little monster, his dad’s favorite fishing buddy, his little sisters’ obnoxious yet courageous bubba, a King to his blue-eyed baby girl’s kingdom, his nephew’s superhero, and the Clyde to someone’s Bonnie. He was sunshine on a cloudy day and our moonlight in our darkest nights. We will rejoice in his memory and celebrate his life and remember the countless pranks he pulled and jokes he told. No one could be Austen, “Drive fast take chances”
