Dustan Michael Spanier was born October 9, 1986 in St. Cloud, Minnesota to Joseph and Jane (Markfort) Spanier. He graduated from Paynesville High School, class of 2005. He continued his education at St. Cloud State University and later, Herberger Business School obtaining a B.A. in information systems. He worked at Prime Therapeutics as a data visualization consultant . He had a passion for flying drones, finding joy in both playing with and upgrading video games, as well as building and repairing technical equipment.

His selflessness and unwavering positivity radiated through his interactions, as he delighted in sharing jokes and constantly wore a smile. He left an indelible mark on countless lives, and his absence will be deeply felt by all who were fortunate enough to know him.
