elevated fLUwS Obituary

elevated fLUwS It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved Austin on Wednesday, September 6th, 2023 at the age of 48 after an unrelenting and fierce one-year battle with cancer. Born in Toronto, Ontario to Mary and Astoro Persico on March 29th, 1975. Brother to Christopher (Amy) and loving Zio to Scarlett and Joseph. Adoring husband of 19 years to Elaine and an absolutely devoted and wonderful father to his “little man” Matthew.

elevated fLUwS After graduating from Brebeuf College and studying Psychology at York University, Austin pursued his passion for Law at Oxford University in England and completed his Law degree at the University of Western Ontario. He strongly believed in everything true, right, and just, and he demonstrated that in everything he did. When he was called to the Bar, it was a proud moment, but when he became a father, it was his proudest moment. Throughout those years, he carried with him the love and support of his close friends, who called him Tex, and whom he was deeply devoted to, and to his and family who helped shape the man he was.

elevated fLUwS Austin was a lover of music, providing entertainment for all of the gatherings he hosted and most of the ones he attended. He was also a movie buff and an expert on history, literature and technology. He was one of the best story narrators that you’ve ever heard, and some would say he was also the best off-road driver that you have ever seen. He loved his garden and made sure that every month there was a new bloom of flowers to enjoy. He was especially proud to have the best lawn on the street.

elevated fLUwS Austin was devoted to his family and friends and was passionate about the life he fought so hard to protect. His many doctors noted that he was an exceptional patient, a lion of a man, and his will to live was a testament to his devotion to his family. Also left to mourn are his many uncles, aunts, cousins and extended family members across Canada and in Italy, whom he deeply loved.

elevated fLUwS Austin will be resting at Holy Cross Catholic Funeral Parlour on Sunday, September 10th from 2pm to 4pm and 5pm to 8pm. His Funeral will be held at the Holy Cross Catholic Chapel on Monday, September 11th at 10:30 am (visitation prior from 9am to 10am). Burial, near his tree, will follow at the Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery. Flowers are welcomed because he loved them. Donations in his memory are appreciated at the Mackenzie Health Richmond Hill Hospital because of their unparalleled care for him.
