Dustin Edward Patten

Memorial service for Dustin Patten will be held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, January 7, 2022 at Gillette Memorial Chapel with Pastor Ernie Bishop officiating.

Loving father, son, brother, and friend, Dustin Edward Patten was born on January 12, 1983 in Williston, ND and left us much too soon on December 30, 2021. Dustin passed away at his home in Gillette, Wyoming.

When Dusty was 6 months old his family moved to Billings, MT where he grew up attending Lockwood School and Billings Senior High School. Dusty lived in Billings until 2002 when he moved with his parents to Casper, WY and from there he moved to Gillette, WY where he made a home for his two boys.

As a young boy Dusty was adventurous, mischievous, and the light of our life. He kept his older brothers on their toes, never a dull moment. Dusty had a smile that could light up a room.

He was the most loving man, never hanging up or leaving a room without saying “I love you”. He always made sure you knew you were loved. He had a sense of humor like no other, sometimes we just had to explain with “well that’s just Dusty”.

Dusty spent his entire adult life working in the oilfield, most recently working for Firesteel Well Service. He was definitely a roughneck at heart, you could never ask for a harder worker.
