Austin was born on August 29, 2002, in Wausau, WI to Michael & Audra (Krebsbach) Retterath. He was loved by not only his parents but his older siblings, Chris & Alissa. He grew up attending his siblings’ events and was always their biggest fan. As he got older, he had many hobbies including playing basketball, cheering on the Packers, spending time at the lake with his family and friends, and visiting new places with his family.

Austin chose to attend the University of Minnesota after graduating from East Ridge High School. He earned the distinction of being placed on the College of Science & Engineering’s Dean’s List. He loved supporting the Gophers at all of their sporting events and made great relationships and memories while at the U of M.

Austin has been a blessing to his family and was the ray of sunshine in their lives. He will be greatly missed by his friends and family who will strive every day to live the way Austin did, with selflessness, compassion, and a strong love for God.

Austin is survived by his parents Michael & Audra Retterath; his brother Chris (Skylar) Retterath; his sister Alissa (Isaac) Leonard; and his nephews and niece that he adored – Crosby, Jay, & Isla. He is also survived by a loving extended family and great friends.
