Austin Taylor Carson: Video

“There are two types of people in this world: those who crawl under their bed in a storm and then there was Austin who charged–arms wide, without fear into it’s very midst and danced.”

Austin Taylor Carson, 27, of Frankfort, passed away on Tuesday, August 8, 2017 in South Dakota while on a much anticipated motorcycle trip with his dad.

He was born on April 10, 1990 in Frankfort to Daniel and Sherrie (Taylor) Carson.  He was a 2008 graduate of Frankfort High School and earned his Associates Degree in 2011 from Indiana – Purdue University Fort Wayne.  He had been employed at Federal Mogul in Frankfort as a Manufacturing Engineer for 2 ½ years.  Austin was a fan of the West Ham Soccer Club and enjoyed playing soccer.  He was also a Certified “Storm Chaser”, a Tennessee Titans football fan, and loved to travel.
