Austin Douglas Julien, age 24, returned to the angels on September 23, 2021.
Austin was welcomed to this world on April 14, 1997 to Douglas and Diane Julien in Detroit, Michigan. He was the youngest son, but would grow up to be the tallest of all his siblings (a fact that thrilled him to no end). Austin was known for his large, warm hugs and being a genuinely loving and compassionate person. He loved to make his friends and family laugh with his spot-on impersonations, and always had a good joke to share. It was impossible not to love Austin once you had met him. Austin was a great athlete, playing basketball in high school and beyond, he also loved swimming, working out, and playing cornhole. However, the greatest joy in Austin’s life was his family. Family was everything to him, and he especially was proud of being an uncle to his beloved nieces and nephews.
Austin will be forever remembered by all who loved him.
Austin is survived by his beloved parents Douglas and Diane.
