program. He had held a management job at a McDonald’s in Central prior to joining the Sheriff’s Office. That role earned him the nickname “Happy Meal” among his fellow deputies. Dustin laughed about that nickname.

The day that he was sworn in as a deputy was the proudest day of his life.

The Sheriff's Office is in mourning over the the loss of their comrade.  Police officials describe Dustin as a fine young man. 

Friends stated that he was loving and compassionate and considerate.

Dustin is survived by many loving friends and relatives.

Thank you for your service to the public, Dustin.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next. Amen.

Pray that Dustin is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
