Dustin fought a hard two-year battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was a Warrior through the entire fight, and always gave 110 percent to all treatments that his medical team asked of him.

Born in Troy, Dustin was raised in Wynantskill and was a graduate of Troy High School, Class of 2002 and earned his BA from SUNY Brockport, Class of 2006. In 2013, Dustin pursued a dream a decade in the making, and drove cross country to live on his own in California.
Dustin was a Logistics Supervisor at dd's Discounts Retail Distribution Center in Riverside, CA and had previously been employed as a Supervisor at UPS in Latham.
Dustin was a "one of a kind" son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin, nephew, grandson and friend. Dustin was an intelligent, wonderful, priceless treasure who will truly be missed by all.
Dustin was a sports aficionado who loved watching and playing all types of sports. His favorite football team was the Miami Dolphins and he particularly held Hall of Fame Quarterback, Number 13, Dan Marino, in high esteem. Dustin also followed the tradition of drinking champagne when the last undefeated team fell, in honoring the '72 Miami Dolphins.
A long-time daily enthusiast and fan of Jeopardy, Dustin was routinely sought out at pub "trivia nights" for his wealth of sports and general knowledge, and was known to be able to be the difference maker on his team.
