Vernon C. Austin, 93, of Medina, NY, went to be with the Lord on Mon., Feb. 8, 2021 at Premier Nursing Home, Batavia, NY. Born on Nov. 25, 1927, in Medina, NY, he was the son of the late Irving and Cora (Oliver) Austin.

Vern attended Medina High School and then worked as a Machinist and Salesman at Dolors-Jarvis Machine Shop and recently was employed with Austin Industries of Albion, NY. For 30 years, Vern was the devoted Caretaker of Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Shelby and prided himself in the meticulous care given to long hours of trimming and mowing the cemetery.  Vern had an amazing memory and knew where most families were buried without looking at the records.  On July 26, 1986, he married the former Lois Grant. Vern was an avid reader of health literature and was a devoted Bible reader.

Besides his wife, Vern is survived by his four children: Danice Austin of Albion, Vernon Carl Austin Jr. of Batavia, Beverly (Dick) Walthew of E. Bethany, and Alan (Barb) Austin of Albion.
Also survived are five grandchildren: David, Daryl, Darci, Anne, Stephany and 12 great-grandchildren, two brothers-in-law: Clifford (Susan) Grant of Gasport, NY, Lee (Lori) Grant, and a sister-in-law, Jean Grant, all of Middleport, NY.

Besides his parents, Vern is predeceased by a brother, Howard.

There are no calling hours. A private service will be held at the convenience of the family.

Arrangements were made through the Bogan & Tuttle Funeral Home, 226 Pearl St., Medina, NY 14104.
