Austin Kentrell Williams was born on November 17,1995 in Slidell, LA to Hazel Loucresha Williams Knox and Donald Bernard Cousins, Jr. He is preceded in death by his grandfathers, Daryl Negel Cryer, Donald Bernard Cousins, Sr., Grandmother, Emma Jean Cousin and Auntie, Princess Betty Elizabeth Williams. From a toddler, Austin had a bubbly personality and a natural way of bringing out the best in others. He never met a stranger, and his laugh was contagious. His beautiful smile is just as big as his heart. He is his mother's only son and was a true, proud Mama's boy.
In 2009. Austin made the decision to make the LORD JESUS CHRIST, his LORD and SAVIOR, and was baptized in the name of CHRIST JESUS and received the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Throughout his teen years, he was active in his church at the EL-Bethel Worship Center. He has a heart for the elderly and the homeless. He did countless acts of service for others. The ones that made the most impact was when he would see that his friends were in distress or had issues that only GOD could help and would bring them home to his mom for her to pray with and for them. He and his sisters were the 3 amigos. Jene' was always very protective of him, helping him navigate his way through life, and to Unique, he was her Black Panther. Whatever the reason, she was going to call "her brother".
In 2014, Austin completed the youth challenge program in Carville, Louisiana and as a young man with a family, he made his living working in construction. He was family oriented, loved to be with his children and fiancée or at home playing his game.
He leaves to cherish his memories, his parents, Hazel Williams Knox, Shawn Knox, and Donald Cousins, Jr. Two sisters, Jene' Ariane Williams and Unique Princess Williams. Two brothers, Donald Bernard Cousins III and Kaulice Donell Cousins.
Grandmothers, Eva Williams & Vivian Curtis; His favorite Tee-Tee, Kafi Williams, and bonus sister, Olivia Wellington; Five Children: Anthony Emmanuel Ventura, Layanah Simone Williams, Sierra Lynn Moore, Nilah Sage Williams and Aulani Elizabeth Williams. Fiancée', Rejanae Williams; four bonus Children, Deshawn Edwards, Aiyana Lucky, Bobby Hayes, and Markel Lucky.
