“Dusty” enjoyed hanging out with friends and fishing. He was funny, quick-witted, and full of jokes. Dusty was a jack of all trades who knew everything about anything. He was a kind sincere friend to many. He could carry on a conversation with anyone. If you know anything about him, you know we could go on and on about the kind heart and “wise guy” personality. We miss you always and will continue to do so until we meet again.

Dustin is survived and lovingly remembered by his mother, Vera Klenk of Springbrook, Iowa; his very special seven-year-old daughter, Lilee; four brothers, Darren (Brooke) Rusty (Hailye); Wes (Haley); and Trevor (Amber); nieces and nephews, Leeah and Bailee, Fischer, Avery, Phoenix, and Jhett, Bennett and Clayton; maternal grandmother, Kathryn Klenk; step-mother, Linda Johnson; “Uncle Bob” Dietz; girlfriend, Mindy Richmond; lifetime friends, Charlie and Pam Brown; best friends, David Kurslik, Pat Legal, James Hancox, Bobby Perrin, Tommy Riddle, Jen Kinkead, Shelley Canaday, and countless more; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father, Robert L. Johnson in 2003; paternal grandparents, Grandpa George and Grandma Lela; maternal grandfather, Wesley Klenk; and uncle, Jim Klenk.
