On Saturday, April 16, 2022, Austin Chandler Graf left us way too early at the age of 16. He was born on October 26, 2005, Austin was a natural at so many things. He rarely sought the limelight, preferring instead to support those around him and be part of a team. His quiet charisma was infectious and drew people to him throughout his life. Austin was a great athlete and loved playing and watching basketball and football with his family and friends. He also loved the finer things in life. A foodie, he was always eager to try new things and always welcomed a big meal. Many of his best memories were made with his brother, Emil, and sister, Grace, as well as his cousins on Mobile Bay and in La Jolla. Austin was a sophomore at Brophy College Preparatory and previously attended St. Theresa Catholic School.
Austin is survived by his parents, Emil IV and Sara; his brother, Emil V, and sister, Grace; his maternal grandmother Diane Willian (Mimi) and paternal grandfather Emil Graf III (Big E); and aunts, uncles and cousins who adored him.
A Funeral Mass for Austin will be held on Friday, April 22, 2022 at 10:00 am in the Chapel at Brophy College Preparatory, 4701 N. Central Avenue, Phoenix.
