Dustin Edward Patten

January 12, 1983 — December 30, 2021

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. Dusty is survived by his two sons, Aiden Patten and Ashton Patten; his parents Kelly and Daisy Patten; brothers, Laramie Patten (Caroll); nephews, Kelly and Logan, Travis Patten (Sarah); nieces, Caitlyn, Cortney, Austyn, nephews Cadyn and Kyeler. Dusty is also survived by his soul mate and the love of his life Chantell Lass and her children Braydon and Cambria who he treated like his own. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins who loved him dearly. Dusty was preceded in death by his grandparents on both sides, his uncle John Allen, uncle Wayne Patten, aunt Toni Carpenter, uncle Dean Carpenter, and aunt Cathy Vork. Interment will be at a later date. Memorials and condolences may be sent in care of Gillette Memorial Chapel 210 West 5th Street, Gillette, WY 82716. Condolences may also be expressed at
