Austin Terry Graves

July 17, 1999 — June 15, 2023

Austin Terry Graves left us on Thursday, June 15, 2023, to skateboard through the clouds at the age of 23. This precious angel came into the world on Saturday, July 17, 1999, in Boise, ID to meet his parents, Mandy Lee Gillis and Shane Dale Graves. Austin sadly lost his father at a very early age. Austin's mother later married his dad, Edison Morrison. When Austin was 10, he proudly gained the favorite thing in his life, his little brother Brayden.

Austin grew up in east Boise where he attended Liberty Elementary, Les Bois Middle School, Timberline High School, and Boise High. At a young age, Austin discovered he was a gifted runner where he placed very high and took first place in many 5K races. He even placed 2nd in the Junior Olympics. During these same years Austin began to cultivate his obsession and talent for skateboarding and photography. He won numerous skateboard competitions and even taught lessons. Austin's world was right when he was on his board. Austin always had a knack for being an entertainer and loved playing guitar. He socially excelled, gaining a large network of friends in his youth and later in life.

Austin had a very diverse employment history starting with Buck's Bags in high school, Circle H Construction, pipelining in Texas with his uncle, back in Boise at Barbacoa, and he was most recently employed with Premier where he was excelling in sales and recently promoted.

Austin had a free spirit about him and lived in many states. Idaho, Colorado, Texas, Hawaii, and most recently New Mexico were among the places he has called home. It was in New Mexico that he met the love of his life, Bailey Stevens. They were inseparable until his final day.

Austin was a kind and loving soul, who sought out people in need, and made life-long friends in a matter of minutes. He was very passionate about his skateboarding, photography, art, music, his little brother and family. He loved being surrounded by family and friends.
Austin will be lovingly remembered and missed by the many people he touched throughout his life.
