He attended the University of Oklahoma for two years.

He retired from the Santa Fe Railway in 1990.

He and his wife, Mary enjoyed their home together at home with their two dogs.

He was a member of Most Pure Heart of Mary Catholic Church. Austin enriched many lives through his volunteer work at St. Francis Health Center, where he served in many areas, Eucharistic ministry, cardiac rehab, gift shop, mail room and transportation.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Paul and Elizabeth Beavin; and his stepson, John Grady.

Surviving are his wife, Mary; two daughters, Jennifer Gurule of Westminister, Colorado; and Cindy Underhill of Auburn; one step daughter, Kerry Grady of Boston; five grandchildren; one sister, Paula Johnson of Burns Flat, Oklahoma; and two brothers Jerry Beavin of Nicoma Park, Oklahoma; and Howard "Pudge" Beavin of Cheyenne, Oklahoma.
