Austin Martin Williams

October 25, 1981-November 28, 2021

 It is with great sorrow we announce the untimely passing of our beloved Austin Martin Williams.  Austin left us unexpectedly on November 28th, 2021, at age 40.  His love for family and loyalty to friends was unwavering.  He will be deeply missed.

Austin was a strong force, with a wide range of interests and accomplishments.  Always inquisitive and curious he explored, researched, and developed deep convictions.  He was not afraid to be unique and authentic.  He stood up for his beliefs, challenged conventional wisdom, and he pushed us to think.  He cared deeply about people and was a good listener, and truly empathic to people in need.

In his childhood years Austin participated in the Boy Scout program and enjoyed developing his skills.  He was musically inclined, learning to play the flute, and ultimately became the Drum Major at El Toro High School.  He went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Communications with an emphasis on Video Gaming, a passion that continued throughout his life.  He thrived on innovation, embraced computers and video games, and consumed all things digital.  He was a creative leader and entrepreneur, always looking for ways to improve life.

Predeceased by grandparents, Richard and Celia Williams, and John and Sally Cross, Austin is survived by his parents, Don and Ellen Williams, brother Richard Williams, fiancé Breanna Taylor, and a host of family and friends.  Austin will forever be in our hearts.

 O’Connor Mortuary in Laguna Hills has been entrusted with the funeral arrangements. 

A Celebration of Life will be held on December 17th at 10:00 a.m. where we invite you to share your memories of Austin.  Burial will be at 1:30 pm at the El Toro Memorial Park in Lake Forest, California.

      When my 14 yr old dog could no longer walk due to old age. It pained me to have to make the hard decision after months of seeing him in pain. Austin being the brother-in-law he was, found the best CBD oil for pets. He rushed it to my house the day before I was to put my dog to sleep and assured me it would help. Well it did. Not only was my pup running around after 3 days of CBD treatment, he lived 6 months longer. Austin gave me that and so much more. He always had the best advice when it came to my business and at time just life. He was my brother. I trusted him with my life and at times very personal experiences. We’ve ‘shared tears and we’ve shared laughs. I look forward to sharing a hug with you again my brother.

  1. Austin was in no hyperbole one of the smartest people I’ve ever met. In addition to this he was also the type of person who would do anything for his friends, even if it was to his detriment.

    I loved talking with Austin, he was always willing to share his perspective on many issues from politics to technology. He would always be willing to explain things that were hard for me to understand, taking the time needed to do so.

    I will always remember and respect how he would never shy away from telling you how he feels, regardless whether or not it made you uncomfortable, a trait which I respected him greatly for.

    I’ll miss Austin dearly. He was a incredible human. I’ll cherish forever the fact that I was lucky enough to call him a friend.

  2. Austin was truly one of a kind, always true to himself and always living life to the fullest. You could always have the best conversations with him, his outgoing personality and humor was infectious. Uncompromising, intelligent, loyal, incredibly kind and generous, I remember these things the most about him. He will be missed greatly.

  3. We’ve never seen two people that were more meant for each other than Austin and Breanna. They both had very unique and quirky personalities. Austin brought out a good side of Breanna that she held guarded. He did all the cooking and had her try food that we never could. In their quirkiness they just fit! Although Austin was a very private person he seemed very comfortable around our family and us with him. He was definitely one of a kind. RIP Austin!

      Although I didn’t know you too well, I’m glad we were aquatinted. Best of all, you made one of my favorite people, Breanna, happy for many years. Wish we could have played some games or watched some movies together. Taken away much too soon. Rest in peace.
