So so sorry to hear about Dustin. I have many fond memories of him and the Rash family at the ropings. I ran into him out here in Texas a while back. Was so good to see him.
Prayers for Dustin's family and friends. May God wrap his arms around you all and give you comfort.
RIP Dustin.

Dustin was such a great roper from a very early age. Such a shock to hear about his passing. Since our rodeo days ended, we lost touch with so many friends we had made over the years. Our hearts ache for Dustin's family as they go through their healing process.

I watched this kid grow into a man. I watched this kid become one of the best talents I have ever seen in the roping pen. I watched this kid struggle with demons. I watched this kid become a great father. And now I’ve watched this kid step into the company of our Holy Father. The roping world has truly lost a talent. Rest In Peace Dustin. Prayers for the entire family forms Alaska

My heart was so heavy when my daughter Nicki Mullis Johnson called to tell me about Dustin. I have prayed and prayed for the entire family and will continue to do so. The Lord above knew Dustin’s heart and had a much greater plan for him than any of us on earth can see. Dustin was an incredible young man, and an even better cowboy. He will be watching over his family.
