HARROGATE – Marion Austin Teague, 75, born in Egan, TN June 3,1944 and passed September 21,2019 in Harrogate, TN.
Austin was a great loving husband, father, brother, papaw and friend to all who knew him. Many will be able to speak to this from working with him for 42 years at General Motors in Defiance, OH. After his successful career he retired to Tennessee with his wife Zella and their greatest companions Sophie and Spunky. While in Tennessee he was able to enjoy his hobbies of boating and fishing. When he wasn’t enjoying the water he could be seen landscaping his community with newfound friends. No matter where Austin’s time was spent he was always a generous joy to be around and will be greatly missed by all.
