Obituary For Thomas "Trey" Arthor Austin III

Trey Bae Austin passed away due to an unimaginable accident on April 13, 2022 at the age of 2.

God blessed us with this angel for a moment in time. He was with us for just two brief years, but will live in our hearts forever.

Born to Martina Griffin – Mother and Thomas Arthor Austin Jr. – father on August 23, 2019, Trey Bae was a boisterous baby. When he was 1, he immediately became obsessed with playing outdoors and climbing. Some of Trey’s favorite activities were riding in his Audi, playing at the park and watching Peppa Pig.

Our family was not expecting the loss of Trey or for his life to be cut so short- so soon. We are devastated by this loss and will feel the absence of Trey forever. He was the sweetest, kindest, most loving soul and a joy to be around. He will be forever missed.

Trey “Little Tommy” will always be remembered. Survived by his Mother - Martina Griffin, Father - Thomas Arthor Austin Jr., Siblings - Tamia Grace Austin, Tarah Austin, Jakareih Austin, Tanyjah Austin-Flow, Lauryn-Grace Austin, Jayonna Austin, Maternal Grandmother – Eleanor “Bunny” Griffin-Keith (Who shared his Birthday)and God Mother – Bernice Crawford, Paternal Grandparents – Thomas Austin Sr. and Predeceased Paternal Grandmother Grace Jones Austin. Aunts & Uncles – Crystal & Will Tucker, Alicia & Cleveland Griffin-Ward, Sheena Griffin, Khaliah Darden, Latarsha Austin and Kenyatta Jones. God-Aunt Nicole Bynum, Amy (Jimmy) Gerardi-Allen, Jarran Reed, Dee Pollack and God-Father – Kevin D. Graham.

    I met Trey Bae at Aunt Bernice's house and he was so full of joy. He was running around playing and ran into one of the rooms and closed the door behind him. When they opened the door, he was standing on the bathroom sink.🤣 That is how I will always remember him. Just so full of laughter and joy. Martina, Tara, and Tamia....I pray that God wraps his loving arms around you and give you comfort and strength. Yuri K. And Bryanna are blessed to call you family. With much prayer and love, Kechia Williams (Psalms121)
