Obituary for Austin S. Cummings-Howe

PITTSFIELD-Austin Scott Cummings-Howe, 22, died peacefully on Friday, July 10, 2020, at the Elizabeth Levinson Center in Bangor. He was happy and healthy, playful and flirting when his brave heart suddenly stopped beating. One moment he was here and the next he was with Jesus.

Austin was born on April 24, 1998, in Brunswick, Maine. He was truly a gift from God, bringing love and joy to so many people. Austin loved all music, especially country music. He would sing and dance in his chair to Zac Brown, Gath Brooks, and Celtic Thunder. Praise Team music at church always made him smile. He enjoyed black and white westerns, country videos, and looking at himself in shiny, silver balloons.

He is survived by his mom, Deborah Howe of Pittsfield and her companion Robert Giles Jr of Bangor; his brother, George Howe and wife Karyn of Blue Hill; sister, Shayla Cummings; his biological mother, Jessica Chartier; and his extended biological family.

He was predeceased by his biological father, Matthew Cummings; and a brother, Tyler.

A time of music, sharing and celebration will be held from 3-4 p.m., Saturday, August 1, 2020, at Hathorn Park, Central Street in Pittsfield. Casual dress is recommended and please feel free to bring a chair or blanket. Masks are requested out of respect for Austin and those with fragile immune systems. A private committal will be held at the Detroit Village Cemetery.
