MANSFIELD: Austin Matthew Hamilton, age 21, passed away July 20, 2020, at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital ER.
Austin was born December 8, 1998, in Mesa, Arizona, the firstborn of parents Richard & Tracy (Motta) Hamilton. As a child he was the “typical boy” who loved to swim and climb trees. Austin attended Lexington High School with the class of 2017 and was a member of the United States Marine Corps completing boot camp and infantry school.
Austin was gifted in the creative arts. He was a wiz on the computer and had taken a special interest in video editing. He also enjoyed creating artwork with spray paint, watching Anime, playing video games, and listening to music—especially Nirvana. He liked good food and was skilled at cooking. Those who knew Austin could tell you: he had a bit of an ornery streak, but also had a loyal and kind heart that will be dearly missed by his friends and family.
Left to mourn his loss are his loving parents Rich & Tracy Hamilton and sister Ashley Hamilton all of Mansfield, Ohio; paternal grandmother Marilyn L. Hamilton of Pandora, Ohio; aunt and uncles Teresa Hamilton of Leipsic, Ohio, Edward L. Hamilton, Jr. (Cathy) of Midland, Michigan, and Jack Motta of Mansfield, Ohio; cousins Brandy Hamilton of Toldeo, Ohio, David James “D.J.” Hamilton of Findlay, Ohio, Elizabeth Hamilton of Midland, Michigan, and Zach (Chloe) Hamilton of Midland, Michigan; and faithful canine companion Sofie.
Austin was preceded in death by paternal grandfather Edward L. Hamilton, Sr.; maternal grandparents Jack & Linda Motta; uncle David E. Hamilton; and aunt Kelly Motta.
His family will receive friends from 2:00 to 4:00 PM and 6:00 to 8:00 PM Friday, July 24, 2020, in Snyder Funeral Home (2553 Lexington Avenue in Mansfield).
