He was born on October 22, 1949 in Kilgore and passed away on December 23, 2017 at his home in Kilgore. Johnny was the son of Dr. John C. Austin and Lanore Leach Austin.

After living in Pasadena, Nacogdoches and Austin, he returned to Kilgore over a decade ago.

Johnny was preceded in death by his mother and father. He is survived by his sister, Debi Moses and her husband Mike of Bullard; his brother, Larry of Kilgore; and two nephews and their families.
