FARMINGTON – Austin Arnold Giffin, 89, Farmington, passed away with family by his side on December 27, 2017.

Austin was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1946 and was faithful to his dedication by helping others come to know our God, Jehovah, teaching them the truth from the Bible.

His daughters always enjoyed the way he dreamed out loud about the Biblical hope of a better world under God’s Kingdom. His family and congregation of friends will deeply miss him.

He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Irene Joan Giffin, and five devoted daughters, Gayle (Lee) Pollak, Donna (Ron) Hash, Rebecca (David) Hull, Martha (Lester) Foster and Rachel (Howard) Sansoucie. He is also survived by twelve grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
