Austin Thomas Boyd

June 20, 1993 - February 17, 2016


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.

    Austin was a great friend through middle school and high school. Sharing a carpool with him, classes with him, swimming on Trabuco’s swim team with him i always enjoyed being with him. He had this kind smile that wasn’t necessarily kind, sometime it was mischievous, sometimes boisterous depending on what we were doing, but he was always happy. It made me happy to be around him. Im going to miss him, but i look forward to seeing him again, and i know in that day when we meet, when all his early trials have been taken from him, It will be the old friend Austin that i knew standing again with me.

  2. The news of Austin’s passing broke our hearts, even though we know he is in a better place. We are so sorry and want to offer our deepest sympathies. We know that Austin touched so many lives and the loving memories of him will help ease your pain. We pray your faith will give you comfort in the knowledge that it’s part of God’s plan and you will one day see him again. Nancy, Chris, Christopher and Noel, please know that we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

  3. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Austin was a very handsome young man. He is gone to soon but I know you will all cherish the memories and time you had with him. I am so sorry!! I found this poem, which you have probably seen before but I wanted to share. Love, Tonia Stanton

    If Tears Could Build A Stairway

    If tears could build a stairway,
    and memories a lane.
    I would walk right up to Heaven
    and bring you back again.

    No farewell words were spoken,
    No time to say “Goodbye”.
    You were gone before I knew it,
    and only God knows why.

    My heart still aches with sadness,
    and secret tears still flow.
    What it meant to love you –
    No one can ever know.

    But now I know you want me
    to mourn for you no more;
    To remember all the happy times
    life still has much in store.

    Since you’ll never be forgotten,
    I pledge to you today~
    A hollowed place within my heart
    is where you’ll always stay.

  5. God bless Austin and your entire family. Austin is no longer with us, but he is now with Jesus:

    “Do not stand at my grave and weep.

    I am not there; I do not sleep.

    I am a thousand winds that blow.

    I am the diamond glints on snow.

    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

    I am the gentle autumn rain.

    When you awaken in the morning’s hush

    I am the swift uplifting rush

    Of quiet birds in circled flight.

    I am the soft stars that shine at night.

    Do not stand at my grave and cry;

    I am not there; I did not die.”

    (Attributed to Mary Elizabeth Frye)

    Please accept our deepest condolences on your loss.
