Austin Thomas Boyd, 22, of Rancho Santa Margarita. Following a long struggle with mental illness, Austin went home to be with Jesus who he loves so very much. Son of Chris and Nancy; brother to Noelle, Christopher and sister-in-law Taisiia, as well as his loving extended family including grandfather Edward; uncles: Matt, Gary, Rick, and Paul; aunts: Anne, Beth, Ginger, Christa, Cheryl; cousins: Henry, Remie, Megan, Ricky, Alyssa, Madison, Mitchell, Jessica, and Rebecca; as well as many devoted friends.
Austin was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma but moved to Rancho Santa Margarita in 1996. He attended Melinda Heights Elementary School, RSM Intermediate, 3 years at Trabuco Hills High School and graduated from Mission Viejo High School in 2011.
Austin’s smile and blue eyes would light up a room like nobody else. He cared so deeply for everybody else. It was never about him, it was always making sure everybody else was okay. Austin loved swimming, bodysurfing, music, grilling, hiking, and his dog Rascal.
