Larry Wayne Austin

Larry Wayne Austin, 75, of Florence, S.C., died Sunday, Nov. 5, 2023, at his home, surrounded by his loving family and three loyal dogs.

He was born on March 22, 1948, the son of Henry and Eula Austin. 

He married Patty, the love of his life, in 1977. They have two daughters, Sarah and Caitlin (Billy); four grandchildren, Bailee, Austin, Rosalie and Ronan; and one great-grandchild, Nora.

He was preceded in death by his parents; one brother, Danny; and two sisters, Diane and Janice.

He ran a successful business, Austin Industrial Inc., which he started in 1992 from the ground up. He was still working until a few days before his death. He was preparing his son-in-law, Billy Charboneau, to take over and he will continue where Larry left off. He considered Billy as his son and they were wonderful friends.

Mr. Austin was a proud veteran of the U.S. Army and served in Vietnam.  He was a kind, loving, funny, wonderful man and was respected and loved by all who knew him.

In respect for his wishes, there will not be a service.  Cain Calcutt Funeral Home in Florence, S.C., assisted the family with arrangements.
