He was born April 14, 1988, in Madison, WI, the son of Scott Carstensen and Joan Carstensen (Hook). Dusty graduated from River Valley High School in 2006 where he enjoyed playing football and track. Dusty had many family members and friends in Wisconsin but eventually found his way to Oregon to pursue his passions. He always enjoyed venturing in the wilderness and living off the land. He found his peace on those long walks and in front of those beautiful sunsets (a passion he shared with his late Mother). He enjoyed his newfound passion of tree climbing and being a "lumberjack" and always had stories to share of his big climbs.
Dusty is survived by his father: Scott (Susan Clinger) Carstensen; 2 brothers: Joseph (Sara) Carstensen, Jacob (Amanda) Carstensen; step-sister: Amanda Ross;step-brother: Lucas Storlie; and many nephews, nieces, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and many other family and friends.
Dusty is preceded in death by his mother Joan Hook, step-mother Becky Ross, Grandparents, uncle Jack, and many friends he loved and missed dearly.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. The family suggests memorials be sent to Joe Carstensen at 805 S Pine St, Lone Rock, WI 53556. The Pratt Funeral and Cremation Service is assisting the family with the arrangements in Wisconsin. prattfuneralservice.com
