Renee, Joey and family, I am sad that we did not get to know Dustin. As you know, we are brand new to your family. I must say that Renee shared her love of her family and friends with us in the last few months. We could see that she has much love for her family and in seeing this we are so blessed to have found you all. We hope to get to know and meet more of our new family in the years to come. Renee, I feel your pain but, also by talking to you, I know you have many friends and family close to you that will see you thru this sadness. We love and miss you all.

I served with Dustin in the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment. It breaks our hearts when we lose anyone, but it hearts more when we lose a Patriot that had such love for God, family and country. My condolences to his family. I pray that he now rests in the arms of the Father.

We have so much to say about Dustin. He was always ready for an adventure. He loved fiercely. He could make anyone feel special. He was the best story teller and could have anyone in side stitches in minutes. With him laughing that famous laugh and showing that big bright smile right beside them. What we will miss most about Dustin is how we wouldn't hear from him for months and out of nowhere he will call saying, "what y'all doing? I'm in town!" He was one in a million. The world definitely dulled when he left. We will miss him terribly but will cherish our memories forever!

Dustin was kindness wrapped in sorrow. He was one of the best men I've ever had the privilege of getting to know. We met in 2016 at the VA in Mountain Home. He had an infectious smile that could light up a room. His presence on the Earth shall be missed by everyone who ever came in contact with him. He was one of a kind. Fair Winds and Following Seas, my friend. God has taken His mighty soldier home.
