Dusty was such a kind person and it was the very first impression he made on me. I’m so sad to see that he’s gone. I hadn’t seen him in a long time, but I have the best memories of him singing random made-up songs to make people laugh or to cheer them up. He was a good one. My condolences to his family.

His smiles, shared laughs and "Twin Birthday" wishes each November 9th that we shared at our lockers will never be forgotten. This special connection drew us together immediately. Thank you for bringing Dustin into this world for the rest of us to have the pleasure of having him in our lives. He truly left a lasting impression in my life and holds a very special place in my heart forever. I am forever grateful for having the privilege of knowing Dustin.

The news of Dustin has broken my spirit and it pains me even more that I couldn’t be there for his memorial today. There was something about Dustin that made me look to him like a little brother, but that’s how much I cared for him while we worked together at Tasta Pizza. He had such a fun-loving free spirit and I will forever cherish the Gary Fisher bike we bought from him just as I hope he got a lot of enjoyment out of the guitar(s) he bought off my now husband. I will always remember his little snicker of a laugh and his “go-with-the-flow” infectious attitude. He will be missed and his legacy will be remembered always.
