The family will receive friends from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday at the funeral home.
Austin was cycling southbound on the sidewalk along Bells Ferry Road near the Cherokee-Cobb County border around 4 p.m. on Wednesday when, for unknown reasons, he lost control of the bicycle and entered oncoming traffic, said Cobb County Police Department Spokesman Mike Bowman.
A 2006 silver Nissan Xterra, driven by Lilburn resident Amanda Neill, struck Austin, who died at the scene. Neill was not injured in the crash.
Bowman added that while the investigation continues, Neill is not expected to be charged.
Austin is survived by wife, Mary-Ellen Shelley Austin; daughter, Katelynn Page Austin; sons, Blake Lewis Anthony and William Alexander Shelley; sisters, Margie Carter and Mary Jane Blankenship; and cousin, Angiee Austin Hall.
