He is survived by his loving mother; Heather Drake of Attica; grandparents Jim (Kris) Drake of Attica; uncle Shawn Drake of Batavia, Aunt Ashley Wright of Batavia, Aunt Kristina (Anthony Berrios) Thompson of Attica; sister in law Javette Drake of Attica; nieces Jamie Thompson, Sienna and Lena Berrios and Acelia Drake and nephew Clayton Thompson

Austin was presently attending the Monroe County Special Education Extend program in Spencerport. He graduated from Spencerport High School in June of 2015. He attended the GVRC camp for special needs children in Pike. Austin was special in ways and taught us many lessons in life like how to have an open mind, love unconditionally, to smile on the most difficult days, and to have patience with people. So because of these life lessons our family on behalf of Austin would like to thank both Varysburg & Attica EMS, the responding officers from Wyoming County Sheriff's Department, Chief Henderschott, the staff of Warsaw hospital's ED, Timothy Meister of Marley Funeral Home, and Stacey Storm from the ARC of Livingston/Wyoming County. Your efforts and compassion have not gone unnoticed.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Austin’s name to the Genesee Valley Rotary Camp www.gvrc.org or GVRC c/o Ernest Wiard - 15 Hal-bar Rd., Avon, NY 14414 or to the family to distribute to various charities.
