Charles Austin Obituary, Death – On July 1, 2023, Charles John Austin, who was 57 years old at the time, was reported missing and never heard from again. Despite the fact that Charles was born in Albany, he spent his childhood in the nearby town of Coeymans. He settled in Coxsackie in his later years and made that town his permanent residence. In his earlier years, he was well-known throughout the world of blacktop as a living legend for his knowledge in paving and all issues pertaining to blacktop, and he was liked by everyone in the community.

After he retired, he became known as the Earlton Hill MacGyver when he accepted a position as the Maintenance Manager at Earlton Hill Campground.
