Jacksonville, FL —
A huge turnout for the funeral of former Jacksonville Mayor Ed Austin.
Hundreds of family, friends and political leaders packed the Church of the Good Shepherd this morning. Among the political dignitaries were former Mayors John Delaney and Jake Godbold.
Austin died Saturday at age 84. He served for two decades as state attorney, then was elected mayor of Jacksonville in 1991.
Austin will be buried at Evergreen Cemetery on North Main Street.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Prisoners of Christ (P.O. Box 28159 Jacksonville, FL 32226), the Jacksonville Symphony or the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd.
