Austin Dwight Ponsart Obituary

Austin Dwight Ponsart, 25, of Warrenton, Virginia passed away on Monday, January 9, 2023 after injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on Sunday evening. 


Austin was born on January 14, 1997, to Lisa and Dwight Ponsart. He graduated from Manassas Park High School in 2015. Austin and his parents moved to Warrenton in July,2015. Austin shared an amazing love with his family, community of brothers and friends, and acquaintances he met along the way. He made time to show up for those that needed him by being a caring, trustworthy and compassionate son or friend. Austin wanted to brighten lives in his days and that he surely did. 


Austin is most known for his old soul sometimes wise beyond his early years and huge heart. His infectious smile, wit and laugh are characteristics that come quickly to the minds of many. He had a love for his family, friends and brotherhood that never wavered, those he loved always came first, even before himself on many occasions. Austin was a gentle hearted son, first to offer a hug and an uncle that in a moment’s notice would get down on the floor and dress baby dolls as his sweet nieces summoned him to do so. Austin’s listening genres ranged from Slip Knot, Korn to Staind, but Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” most inspired him. 


Austin found his true passion of open roads on two wheels many years ago. He was immediately “all in” from purchasing his first motorcycle and long nights in the garage with his dad working on the motorcycle getting it “just right” for the open roads. He enjoyed and threw himself into every challenging project learning everything he could about working on motorcycles. Austin’s hobby quickly evolved into a true passion of how he wanted to begin his professional career. Austin’s focus honed in on how this dream can become a reality. The day came and Austin had finally landed the dream job, working for Harley Davidson, Washington D.C, where he spent his days learning on the job, continuing education and becoming a certified technician with Harley Davidson. After landing the dream job, came Austin’s true love, Lucy; a 2022 Harley Davidson Lowrider S. Austin’s motorcycle adventures extend beyond the road and the day-to-day grind. He was a proud member of Neptune’s Chosen Motorcycle Club, officially on March 19, 2021. This is where Austin found a brotherhood and was able to show the world what he was all about. Austin, “Bowser”, had an unwavering need to ride and helping others by seeing the core value in every person he met. 


He had a true gift of finding the best in others and that was the only thing that mattered to him. As the family is opened to a world that Austin kept private and close to his heart, it is truly inspiring that other people loved and found the same value in your son that you always knew was there. The world around Austin was so fortunate to have him in whatever capacity in the short time they did. Our place on Earth was better because of his heart, kind spirit and compassion towards others. 


Austin was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Charles and Shirley Ponsart and maternal grandfather, Larry Foster. 


Surviving are his parents, Dwight and Lisa Ponsart, sister, Bailey (Andrew) Murray, nieces, Madelyn and Leighton Murray, nephews, General and Leroy Murray. Also surviving are maternal grandparents Cyndy and Norman Hornbaker and several cousins, aunts, uncles and extended family members that will miss him dearly. 


A Celebration of Life and Memorial Service will be held on Friday, January 20, 2023, at Moser Funeral Home, Warrenton, VA with a visitation service from 2-3pm followed by a memorial Service from 3-4pm. 


In lieu of flowers, a memorial contribution can be made to Christina M. Weir Foundation for Excellence in Educationhttps://cristinamweirfoundation.org/in Austin’s honor. 


The family would like to thank the Winchester Fire and Rescue Department, Winchester Police Department and the Trauma, ICU and patient advocate team at Winchester Memorial Hospital for their professional and compassionate care for our son, Austin.
