Dustin Curtis was a 2005 graduate of Science Hill High School. He became a firefighter for the city of Elizabethton in October of 2015. Dustin graduated rookie school in May of 2016 where he worked on the Blue Shift. He was well liked by all his fellow fireman. You can tell by talking with the fireman that they were more like family. According to his co workers Dustin was as real as it gets always reliable, true kind hearted person.
He would help anyone and never had a bad thing to say about anybody. He had a very close relationship with his family and his son Alikye was his world! From the moment I met Dustin I could see the love and devotion he had for his wife and son. There wasn’t any job that he couldn’t tackle . He could do anything he set his mind to. When Dustin wasn’t at work you could find him helping his father in law at Mallard Cove Marina. Dustin was a wonderful son to his parents Gary and Brenda, a loving father to Alikye and husband to Allie. He also was a loving brother to Gary, Teddy, Brittany, and Cody. His nephews Kaden and Kason and nieces Trinity and Paisley adored Uncle Dustin. By getting the community involved in this benefit ride you can see the impact that Dustin had on everyone. The amount of love and support for him and his family has been amazing!
