Dusty and I have been friends ever since we met in middle school. Dusty, Bill, and I always made great memories together and I will always cherish those forever. I wish we had more time together over the years. Praying for peace, blessing, and healing for the family. Love and miss you brother
We met Dusty in the mid-80’s when we moved next door in Elizabethtown. He was always so full life and energy, excited about life. He was a really good guy and we will miss seeing him.
Our condolences to the family. May God comfort you and keep you close.
So sorry for your loss. Dusty was a person that never met a stranger and was always willing to help anyone. I used to enjoy when Dusty and Dustin would stop by and get BBQ from us. He was also a great co-worker.He was also one of the first people to offer me any help when I became disabled. Your family will be in my prayers.
I graduated with Dusty .My sister and I use to catch a ride in the mornings with Dusty good times and special memories.
I always thought of Dusty as the “sweet and goofy” little brother of my friend Dee. One thing about him as you never saw him without a smile on his face!! I am so heartbroken for his wife, children, grandchildren, my friend Dee and all who love him. My prayers and love are with you all.
I worked with Dusty at Frito Lay. He always made me his famous chocolate cake and told me about all his crazy adventures. His goal always to leave me with a visual I could never forget. He always said he would be there for me no matter what. He was true friend. I loved him so much.
Dusty always had a way of meeting someone for the first time and treating them like he knew them forever. No matter how many years may have passed, he was always there with that big smile and a laugh. Hugs and prayers to Annette and family as no day to follow will ever be easy.
I went to school with Dusty. He and his parents used to stop in Plaza 94 when I worked there. He and his son came by my work a couple years ago and we had the chance to catch up and had a few laughs. He will definitely be missed! Sending prayers for his family and friends!
I met Dusty in the 2nd grade. I was new to the neighborhood and was walking to school. He and Linda, his Mom, stopped and asked if I wanted a ride. Had no idea who they were. We became good friends after that and did what kids do for several years. We swam, fished, played both baseball and basketball, and explored. We even got hassled by a bull when we cut through a field going to his house. Taken away way too young!!! RIP old friend. See you again someday.
We are so saddened to learn of Dusty’s passing. He was such a good man and a thoughtful friend and co worker. May God carry and comfort you all during this trying time. Sending love and prayers for the family.
