Dusten loved being on the water very much. He grew up beach fishing with the whole family. Dusten’s love of fishing led him to become a commercial fisherman. He’s done everything from longlining to working on trawl boats. But most importantly, he was always willing to go shrimp fishing, which he enjoyed immensely. Dusten had a heart of gold. He was always there to help people in distress who needed help. The love he had for his family and children spread far and wide.
In addition to his parents, Dusten is survived by his son Ean William Abbott and daughter Madison Brooke Abbott; his brothers Douglas Ray Abbott (Lara), Shannon Abbott (Sherri), Ray Abbott, Jr. (Brandi), Cliff Abbott (Carley), and their daughter Caylin Abbott; and his sister Penny Marie “Sis” Abbott (Nate Midgett).
