Austin Harold Rasmussen

Austin Harold Rasmussen, 10, a resident of Dietrich, passed away Saturday, March 31, 2012, at his home in Dietrich.

Austin was born on Feb. 20, 2002, in Ketchum, Idaho, to Brandon and Stephanie Ekstrand Rasmussen. He came home with a smile on his face that grew as he did.

Austin had a passion for animals and dirt! Being the happy young man that he was, he always had an open heart for others. With a soft smile and a warm voice, he found a way to make things right.

Austin leaves behind his brother, Billy; his sisters, Karly and Kaitlynn; his parents, Brandon and Stephanie Rasmussen; grandparents, Verl and Dena Rasmussen, and Karla Ekstrand. Austin is also survived by his greatgrandfather, Warren Rasmussen, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins and his many friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Alana Rasmussen.

His warm, loving smile will be greatly missed. Farewell, our son, we will always love you—Mom and Dad.
