("Joe Dad") Dustin
John Edward Dustin ("Joe Dad") passed away on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 in Poulsbo, Washington surrounded by his loving family.
He was born August 23, 1929 in Fairbanks, Alaska but grew up in Seattle. The former Seattle Prep student body president graduated from University of Santa Clara and served in the Army
before working for GMAC in finance until retirement.
Joe Dad loved life. His greatest gift was his absolute, unwavering, positive attitude. He would always say "It's going to be a good day!" He met every challenge with unrelenting optimism. His radiant personality, childlike loving spirit and infectious sense of humor gave us many belly laughs. He was kind, big hearted and loved by everyone who knew him.
His favorite pastime was sitting on the deck off Sandy Hook enjoying the beautiful view. He would often say, "I'm the luckiest guy alive!" He was devoted to his Catholic faith, and enjoyed fishing, golfing, music, acting classes and, oh yes, candy bars!
He leaves behind his best friend Ginny Hughes and her children- Skip, Julie, Sam and her grandchild Katie; his sisters- Harriett Sierer, Jean Dodge and Vicky Sapp; his children- Erin, John, Matt, Marty, Cathrine, Kerry; his grandchildren- Jansen, Hayley, Tyler, Raquel, Cole, Ashley and Cameron as well as 4 great grandchildren. He was predeceased by his son Christopher; and parents Muriel and Charles Dustin.
We love you Johnny Dustin;
You will be greatly missed!
