Dustin Harold Morris passed into Heaven and into the arms of Jesus on July 18, 2020, in Oklahoma City at the age of 38 years old. He was born June 12, 1982 at Mercy Hospital in Oklahoma City to Danny and Phyliss (Overstreet) Morris. The oldest of three children, Dustin attended Harvest Hills Elementary, Kenneth Cooper Middle School, and was a proud graduate of Putnam City North High School, Class of 2001. Growing up, Dustin competed in multiple sports including little league football, baseball, and basketball. He was also active in Boy Scouts. He was involved in his Youth Group and Teen Choir at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. A diehard Oklahoma State Cowboys fan, he rarely missed a game, always supporting his team whether in the stands, watching on TV or listening to the radio commentary. Once he turned 16, Dustin found a new passion: fast cars. He was so proud of his bright orange 1973 Datsun 240Z. Everyone in the P.C. North parking lot got to hear Dustin arrive and leave school every day! After high school, he attended his beloved Oklahoma State University, and became a devoted member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity. Commonly referred to as D-Mo, Dustin loved his college days, and enjoyed reminiscing on funny stories from the Kappa Sig house. Post college, Dustin worked as a valued Compliance Specialist for an oil and gas service company. A true people person, Dustin’s talents most shined throughout his career within the hospitality industry. His combined passion for the culinary arts and service to others made him an enthusiastic team member. The deeply held core values of respect and equity were reflected not only in his work ethic, but also in his personal daily worldview. Dustin regularly engaged in courageous conversations always standing up for his beliefs. He enjoyed going to the lake, snow skiing, golf, reading, live music, studying gemology, travel and was a lover of animals. However, his greatest love were his friends and family.
