Austin Michael Sellars July 19, 2002 - June 16, 2022

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved son and brother, Austin Michael Sellars of Boise, Idaho, who passed away June 16, 2022, at the age of 19, leaving to mourn many family and friends.

Austin and his twin brother, Jordan,  were born on July 19, 2002, in Boise, Idaho to Michael and Dunja Sellars.

He attended Boise area schools and graduated from Centennial High School in 2020.  Austin was attending the College of Western Idaho seeking a degree in media arts and videography.  He acquired his FAA drone pilots license in 2020 and started his own business, Austin Sellars Aerial Photography (ASAP Drones). He enjoyed flying and filming many sites around Idaho.

Austin loved the peace and beauty of the outdoors and spent time fishing, traveling the mountain backroads, and just laying back and taking in the majesty of nature. He also had a love for music, playing the guitar and ukulele was one of his favorite hobbies in life.

He will be greatly missed by those he leaves behind – parents Michael and Dunja; brother Jordan, brother Matthew; Grandmother Lydia; aunts, uncles and cousins; and good friends.

Austin had a great love for animals so any donations or adoptions please be made in his memory through the Idaho Humane Society. His recent adoption of “Apollo”, a kitten, was the light of his life and loved very much.

Those who wish, may share memories and condolences on Austin’s memorial page at www.bowmanfuneral.com.

    I met Austin on the first day of sixth grade at Lowell Scott Middle School. We sat next to each other in Miss Brockman’s English class. We introduced ourselves and hit it off right away. Austin was always very easy-going and great to talk to. No matter the subject or nature, he would always listen and offer his thoughts. This came in really handy when we were in our Junior year of high school and we once again sat next to each other in a class, this time being Speech class. I had always struggled with speaking in front of the class and was terribly nervous to do so, but Austin would always give me positive words of encouragement and compliment me when I was done. I always appreciated that so much.
    That was the kind of guy Austin was. He was thoughtful, kind, encouraging, trusting and just a stand-up guy. He was always incredibly friendly and I was glad I got to know him when I did. While we were never incredibly close, and I had lost contact with him once high school ended, I’ll always cherish the memories I have of him.
    I can’t even begin to express how sorry and sad I was to hear this news. My condolences go out to the entire family. Jordan, I can’t imagine what you are going through, but my endless sympathies to you.
    Austin was one of a kind. I, and everyone that had the privilege of knowing him, will miss him a whole lot.

    My condolences,

    Jack Tandrow

    We are without words. The sun shines a little less bright without our dear nephew, Austin. And yet, we smile every time we remember him – his sweet smile and the sparkle in his eyes. He was one of the kindest people we knew with a great sense of humor and an adventurous spirit. We will think of him every time we see a glorious sunrise over the mountains or a peaceful sunset over the water. You’ve heard it said, “He was too good for this world” – that was our Austin. We will miss him terribly and hold him in our hearts forever.

    We cannot begin to understand the pain and loss that Mike and Dunja and Jordan are feeling, and our hearts are breaking for them. We love you all and are here for you always.

    Aunt Bernice and Uncle Derek

    “We didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Austin in person, but have enjoyed many fun stories from Mike over the years about Austin & his brothers. Mike always spoke of the boys with a smile on his face, it was clear Austin brought much laughter & love to the whole family. Austin’s interest & love of animals shows he was a kind person & his caring for others shows your good influence as parents. We will make a donation to the Humane Society in Austin’s name. With sympathy, Jeff and Wendy Schreiber”

    It didn’t seem so long ago that I was sitting in a chair at the hospital, with a newly born Austin, in my arms looking up at me. Both he and his twin brother Jordan born into this world innocent and good to their core. We all had no idea the lesson Austin’s example was going to teach. The power of kindness. It wasn’t a transient trait. When he entered a room as he smiled, his kindness shined like a beacon at all times. He was more kind than many in his orbit deserved. But he was always kind regardless. The passing of a young man that was everything that this world needs more of, hurts deeply. He had struggles as many of us do. But now he is at peace.

    Although I know a part of him is with me at all times, I still have to say, goodbye for now my friend. I will see you again soon enough. Today, tomorrow and the next I will continue on. And the day we meet again, when I too am one with the land, the stars and everything in between, we will have much to talk about.

    My deepest condolences to all of Austin’s friends and family. Our recovery from this loss will not be quick or easy. Let this serve as a reminder that during hard times we can and should rely on each other to heal.

    For anyone grieving the loss of the connection they no longer have with Austin, the next time you go outside, slow down. Run your hands through the grass, breathe in deeply, and know he is with you….. Forever.

    I was Austin and Jordan’s fourth-grade teacher. Coincidentally, I am also a twin. On Friday, August 26th, I learned of Austin’s passing and it knocked me down. I am so sorry for your family. I remember how beautifully groomed both boys were every day and I knew their mother loved them. I got homework back from Austin that his mother had helped him with and I knew his mother loved him. I remember calling Austin’s dad to discuss something and his dad pulling over in order to give his full attention to what I had to say about his son and his academic needs. I knew his father loved him. Jordan and Austin were always good to each other — better than my sister and I sometimes were! I knew these brothers loved each other. Jordan, I cannot stand it that you won’t turn fifty with Austin like I did with my twin.

    Austin introduced me to Minecraft and, eleven years later, I think of him every time I see or hear of the game. Each Christmas, I hang a Santa ornament given to me by your family. Now, every year when I hang that ornament on my tree, I will say a prayer of thanks that we got to know him for as long as we did, and a prayer for peace for the family that will miss him always. My heart is breaking late, but I doubt
    I’m alone out here in missing Austin. Much love to you and yours. Judie Bradburn, McMillan Elementary

    Austin is a great friend, Him and I really started to get to know each-other junior year of High School. We were in Mr Adona’s Class together it was a video production class. Me, him and two others made videos together and just had fun all the time. We started to do projects out side of school that i still have then to this day. Austin is always kind, caring and really anything you can think of. He always called me wolverine just cause i could grow facial hair when i was 16/17. I also get along with his twin brother jordan, I always spoke to them on the same day but different times and always saw a resemblance. I didnt hear of this until last night. I talked to him out side of high school after we graduated in 2020. We never really hung out though i would always respond to his stories on social media saying he is awesome and that his motorbike was sick!
    Austin you are one of my great friends and wish the best for you! – Coltin Fielding or in your words (Wolverine)

    Been thinking of you very heavily these past few months. I’m always hoping to see your car out and about since I moved back to Boise. Memories are starting to pop up from when we worked together. I’m so sorry I couldn’t keep up with communication after we graduated. We miss you so much, Austin.
