One of my fondest memories of Dustin was when we were playing baseball. We all used to go down to the park and play baseball, but we were really just hitting tennis balls with bats. We all had such a great time making fun of each other. Another great Memory was when we went camping. We always had such a blast doing dumb things. Dustin was a great friend, brother, uncle, father, and son. He is gone too soon and will be missed by many. Rest In Peace my friend.

I first met Dustin at work, it didn't take long before we were friends. and when he introduced me to his family, because of Ashley, he did so as Uncle Bob.
That is how Dustin was if he liked you, you were Family.
He had a big influence in my life. I eat Pho to this day because of him.
When i was buying a car he talked me into buying one that has been one of my favorite cars.
Then he installed the alarm in it. He built me a computer. he was a do it all kinda guy. A MacGyver.
I will always remember hanging out playing ping pong and videos games. Basketball and football. Also making food like spring rolls and BBQ.
Dustin is Loved by many and i am proud and lucky enough to be one.
Rest in Peace my Brother.

I will always remember Dustin as a funny and caring guy. He was always very cheerful and really pleasant to be around. I remember him always having a big smile on his face and his contagious laugh will never be forgotten. He was a great father, brother, uncle and son. I remember he would give me candy whenever I would visit the computer store back in the day. Only God knows why Dustin is needed in heaven so let's let his beautiful soul watch over us. Rest in peace brother-in-law.

I will always remember the genuine love he showed for his my son, Calvin. There was not a single time they were together where a smile was absent from either of their faces. I wish they had more time together, but I know in my heart Dustin will forever be watching over Cal from above like the proud uncle he was.
