19, previously stationed with the 2nd HET 360th Transportation Company at Fort Carson in Colorado, died unexpectedly Tuesday, June 30, 2009, due to injuries suffered in a motor vehicle accident. Dustin was born December 1, 1989, to Fred and Catherine (Fuller) Small.
Dustin was a young man full of life, love, fun, and adventure: a person who was always there to give, and rare to take. In the spirit of helping others, Dustin wished to be an organ/tissue donor. Due to the severity of Dustin’s injuries, donation was not an option.
To honor her son, Dustin’s mother, Catherine Nelson, with the help of Henry Stratton, Derrick and Kimberly Small, retrieved this stone from the corner of the foundation of the old family homestead in Palmyra, Maine.
