Austin E. Robinson, 78, died on Dec. 26, 2020.
Austin was born on Nov. 27, 1942, in Venice.
He spent most of his life in Torrance and loved swimming and surfing. His hobby was restoring 1946 Ford Woodies over the years. Austin met his wife, of almost 59 years, when they were 17. They were married Feb. 16, 1962. Austin had been in real estate since the mid-70’s. He and his family moved to Yucaipa in 1985 and opened Yucaipa Valley Real Estate in 1988. He was the owner/broker until he sold the business in 2006 and continued to work there until he retired in 2018.
Austin attended Grace Point Fellowship Church, along with his family, and loved working with the children there.
Austin was preceded in death by his parents and four brothers.
He is survived by his wife Patty, son Joe (Stacey), daughter Kathy (Bob), grandchildren, Kenny (Katie), Mandy (Kevin), Katy (Kevin) and Kevin, great-grandchildren Ethan, Ellie, Cam and Maddie. They have been his strength and support through all his years of pain.
His request was not to have a service but his ashes to be scattered in the ocean. The family suggests, in lieu of flowers, a donation to Grace Point Fellowship, Children’s Ministry, in his honor.
