My heart breaks for your family
What a beautiful light and gift Dusty was to our family. A kind, loving gentle giant. Forever missed, RIP, sweet Nephew. May God hold us close.
No word can express the sadness, I feel.
I am a retired Denison officer. I worked with Dusty for years. He and I used to meet up almost daily at work. We played in a fantasy baseball league together. Dusty was a really genuine good guy. Not a great fantasy baseball player, but wonderful guy. if you ever talked to Dusty, you would love him!! I don’t think anyone didn’t like him, even people he arrested. I will miss his goofy personality and that country twang in his voice.
I.love you brother!! RIP.
