Dustin T. Brinager, 30, of Portland, Ohio, passed away unexpectedly on September 2, 2017, as the result of an automobile accident.

He was born on April 23, 1987, at Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital in Parkersburg, WV.

Dustin was the proud owner of Dusty Acres Produce and also worked underground as a coal miner being mentored by his best friend…his dad, and others, to eventually become owner of Calico Coal.

Whether it was farming, hunting, or riding side by sides, Dustin loved to be outdoors appreciating nature. He loved exploring his land, watching westerns, and cheering on the Green Bay Packers and the Golden State Warriors. Most importantly, he loved spending time with his son, Garrett, while having nerf wars, singing songs and throwing Garrett “to the moon, to the moon”. He looked forward to doing the same with his son, Gavin, who he was blessed seeing born just days before the Lord called Dustin home. Dustin was a generous friend. He was a loving, caring brother to Cameron, who predeceased him just 2 years ago. As his parents, we could not have been blessed with a more loving, respectful and devoted son. We thank God for choosing us to be the parents to both of our sons.

His commitment to the Lord as a young boy never wavered throughout his entire life and it was important to Dustin that his sons followed these same footsteps.

Dustin is survived by his parents, Tye and Lori Brinager; his fiancé, Samantha Good and newborn baby, Gavin Jason; his son, Garrett Tyler, and his mother, Samantha Brinager. Also surviving are his maternal grandmother, Kay Warden; paternal grandparents, Cecil and Ruby Brinager; uncles, Doug (Lori) Warden, Brian (Dolly) Warden; aunts, Cyndy Seymour, Camellia (Mike) Huddleston; and his close, wonderful cousins, Stacy, Derek, Christopher, Adam, Jeremiah, Scotty, Corey, Braxton, Mitchell, Ashley, Jordan, Kalynn, Crew and Sailor.

Dustin was preceded in death by his brother, Cameron Jason; his paternal grandfather, Bob Warden; and uncle, Tim Brinager.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday, September 7, 2017, at 1:00 pm at the Racine United Methodist Church, Racine, Ohio, with the Reverend Bill Marshall officiating. Burial will follow in Greenwood Cemetery, Racine, Ohio. Graveside services will be conducted by Jim Satterfield.

Friends may visit the family at the church on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm.
