Dustin "Dusty" Holt Kroll was born November 6, 1976 at Perry Memorial Hospital in Perry, OK to Nicky and Georgianna Kroll and passed away June 8, 2019 at OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City.
Dusty's education was received in the Garber School system. He attended Northeastern A&M College for one year. After college he returned home to Garber and continued farming with his dad and granddad. Dusty was a fifth generation farmer who grew up on land passed down through his family.
Dusty was baptized in the Garber Immanuel Lutheran Church and later confirmed by Pastor Hein. He participated in the church youth group. In school Dusty participated in FFA in which he was an officer for three years and received his State Farm Degree. He was a member of the football team and received "co-offensive lineman" of the year in 1994. He also was state runner-up in the discus in 1995. His classmates voted him "wittiest" for three years in a row.
Dusty enjoyed the family vacations to Las Vegas with grandparents and cousins every summer while growing up. He also enjoyed fishing, hunting, and visiting with his family and friends. He had a very special relationship with all his nieces and nephews - sharing his laughter and wit.

Dusty was somebody who'd bale a family together with soft strong bonds of sharing, who'd laugh and then sigh...and then respond with smiling eyes, when he says he wants to spend his life "doing what his dad does." So God made Dusty a farmer!
