In Memory of Austin Nicholas Barthen

In Memory of
Austin Nicholas Barthen

This is the story of  Austin Barthen who was born in Columbus, Ohio on February 26, 1981.  He left us on September 16, 2005 in Maple Shade, New Jersey.  He was only 24 years old.

As a Freight Dispatcher on the East Coast, he was rapidly advancing his career and looking forward to his future promotion as Operations Manager of his own satellite office in his beloved home state of Ohio. He wanted to get married, buy a home and have children.

His future held great promise.

My wonderful, smart, sweet, gentle, kind, handsome son left a huge void in this world when he took Oxyconyin, fell asleep and never woke up.

In our hearts, Austin will live forever.
