Gary Ernest Austin

WHITEHALL — Gary Ernest Austin, 71, passed away on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012, at his home with family by his side. Born on Jan. 21, 1941, in Whitehall, he was the son of the late Ernest and Marjorie (Lampkins) Austin.

Gary was a graduate of the Whitehall school system and a member of Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church.

He worked for E.B. Metal Products for many, many years.

Gary was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying his motorcycle and snowmobile as well as four-wheeling. Playing cards with his cousin, Bobby and his wife Theresa, was a joy.

Survivors include a son, Michael E. Austin and his wife Karen of Ticonderoga; a daughter, Michelle Hilbert of Crown Point; two sisters, Gail Dickinson and Shirley LaChapelle and her husband Perley (Butch); four grandchildren, Brandon Austin and Kylie Austin, Josh Hilbert and Amanda Hilbert; great-grandson, Karsen Austin; two stepgranddaughters, Kendra Mango and Karissa Cook; seven stepgrandchildren and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Family and friends may call from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, at the Jillson Funeral Home, Inc., 46 Williams St., Whitehall, NY. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church, 9 Wheeler Ave., Whitehall, with Rev. Terence Healy, officiating. Interment will follow at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery in Whitehall.

The family would like to thank Pattie Carpentier, a very special friend for many years, for her constant love and support and her comforting care. We would also like to thank High Peaks Hospice for their guidance and support.

Expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation in Gary's memory to Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church, 6 Wheeler Avenue, Whitehall, NY 12887.
