Austin Tyler Dalrymple passed away at the age of 18 leaving behind family and friends who will forever cherish his kind and gentle spirit. Austin made a difference in so many lives in his short 18 years here on earth. He will be remembered for his desire to make a difference and how passionately he lived his life.
Austin lived his life fully invested. He loved big. He played big. He learned big. He planned big. He was clever and exceptionally smart, graduating a year early from Clover High School. Austin wore his heart on his sleeve, and sometimes didn’t know what to do with those big emotions, but always saw beauty in a world that wasn’t always kind. Austin channeled his interest in music and computers to create music that allowed him to tell touching, clever, and heart-felt stories.
Although Austin’s pain and struggles were real and at times were too much for a little guy to handle, he always made people better by just being around. Austin was loved by so many people, and so many claimed him as their own. For those who didn’t know him, Austin was genuinely a sweet soul.
Austin is survived by his parents, Rikki Dalrymple and Justin Dalrymple, his stepdad, Josh Surratt, and his sister, Kaedyn Dalrymple; his grandparents, Rick and Nancy Carte, Karen Dalrymple, and Susan Ferguson; his aunt and uncles, Brandy and Daniel Hussey, Robert Carte, Jarren & Kim Dalrymple, Jon Godwin, and Michael Godwin; and his cousins, Madison and Danielle Hussey, and Bradley and Logan Dalrymple.
Austin was preceded in death by his grandfathers, James Dalrymple and Ron Ferguson.
Memorial service will be 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, April 6, 2022 at M. L. Ford & Sons Funeral Home, 209 N. Main St., Clover, SC with the Pastor Bill McKinley officiating. The family will receive friends one hour before the service.
