Austin J. Onken, 22

Austin J. Onken, age 22 of Waukon and formerly of New Hampton, died unexpectedly Friday, Oct. 1, 2021.

Austin James Onken was born July 28, 1999, in New Hampton. He loved spending time with his wife, Veronica, whether it was ice fishing trips or watching their TV shows together and time with his son, Aldous, teaching him all about life, love, and video games. Austin always enjoyed what time they had.

He enjoyed spending time with his two birds, and his ever-loyal felines Mufasa and Pookie, playing Apex, going to the races, and listening to his favorite artists Prof and Madchild.

Austin will be remembered for his quick wit and humor and infectious smile, his love and patience for all animals, and his devotion to his family. He will be greatly missed.

A celebration of life ceremony will be held on Saturday, Oct. 16, 2021, from 2 to 8 p.m. at the City Club in Waukon.

All gifts, cards, and monetary donations to console or help in this very trying time should be forwarded to his wife Veronica Onken, 510 West St. SW Waukon, IA 52172. Martin-Grau Funeral Home in Waukon assisted his wife with arrangements.
