Austin Samuel Karl McLuhan succumbed to asbestosis on February 21, 2022 after a long battle with the illness. Austin was born in Lindsay, Ontario on April 27, 1942. He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Beverley Baker McLuhan, daughter Cindy McLuhan, son David McLuhan, and granddaughter Calli-Lynn Nora Seguin.
