I first met Dusty in Europe at a Army food service show. He was the "RIP IT" GUY! Needless to say, Dusty was the highlight of the event. Always had a smile and friendly to everyone he met. Didn't realize at the time that the brokerage that I work for would go on to represent Dusty's company to the military resale system. In the years I lived in Germany, always looked forward to his visits. A true gentleman, who loved the military, his family, & the company he gave so much too. I will always cherish our friendship and memories of our adventures in Europe! God bless you Dusty and RIP my friend!

Dusty, we are going to miss you my friend! You'll be remembered for your passion for your company, your commitment to the military soldiers and their service and for your love of family and friends.
I worked with Dusty for a number of years as our company was his broker to the military resale system. Dusty become a good friend as I respected his commitment to his company, his loyalty to our organization and his dedication to serving the finest customers(the US military and their families) in the world. We spent a lot time on the road together at meetings and dinners and talked about our families, our hopes for the future and our plans for life after retirement. Dusty had a big heart, a great laugh and I was proud to call him my friend.

Dusty was my teen years neighbor, friend and classmate in high school. I grew up next door to his wife, Jonita. I was so thrilled (and so blessed) to see him in 2015 when he came to our 45th high school reunion. He lit up when he talked about his sons, who he was so proud of...and he was such a beaming grandfather too. He was loved by so many. Hearing of his passing has stunned me and others from his youth with unexpected sorrow. I offer my prayers for comfort and peace to Dusty's family and friends during this difficult time. He is reunited with the love of his life and his Lord, and I will miss him.

Worth Bagley Shuman III, that's a title not a name.. He was always "Dust Man" to me. I knew him for years and we worked together at Shasta for many of them. We literally travel the world together from Hawaii to Dubai, Bahrain, Kuwait, Germany, and all over the US. If I had to choose a word to describe "D Man" it would have to be passionate. He was that and then some about his family, his work, and his Lord. We had our ups and downs but way more ups than downs. He was my friend and I will miss him.

I am his first cousin. To me and our family, he was always Dubby. As children, we spent many summer days together riding bikes all over Norfolk, swimming in Ms. Abrams' pool and going to the movies. Dub came to Germany a few times when I was assigned there as a chaplain. He visited with us and we shared a meal or two. I have many fond memories of him and will keep him tucked in my heart. To his children, grandchildren and to Linda, I pray God will assuage your terrible grief and sooth your hearts with His peace. Tim

I have to remind myself daily that big grief is the price we pay for big love. I have very big grief right now. I'm angry and heartbroken and scared because I don't want our girls to have to do life without their Poppy. Thank you for being so impactful and available to them while you were able. We will forever remember your bear hugs, belly laughs, kisses on the lips and kind and generous spirit. You personified BIG love and I miss you.
