Former Waco Councilman William Austin Sr, was laid to rest yesterday morning.

Over a hundred people gathered at Waco Convention Center to pay respect to former Councilman Austin. Many reminisced on the great impact that he had over the community.

Austin served as a government leader for over a decade.

In addition to serving the community he was also a pastor at Peaceful Rest Baptist Church.

He will truly be missed.
