Dustin Kanske, 36 of Mount Vernon, WA passed away unexpectedly on Friday, September 1, 2017. Dustin was born in Mount Vernon, WA on December 2, 1980 to Debbie and Duane Kanske. Dustin attended both Skagit Valley College and Western Washington University, studying computer science. Dustin’s fascination with computers and technology “to save the internets” started in 1998, while working for Connect Northwest. Throughout his career he had the opportunity to touch many lives while working in many counties, states, and even countries before landing his dream job for Armadillo Insight based out of his home town.
Although dedicated to his craft, Dustin managed to enjoy and love many things. Some of his passions included – playing music, camping, cooking, gardening, BBQs, exploring Hawaii and often just sitting on the front porch sharing conversation with anyone that wanted to listen. He was also an avid “knock knock joke fan” and knew all the good ones.
Dustin is survived by his mother and father; Duane and Debbie, brothers, Doug and Dean, many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and close friends. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Doris and Keith Egbert, Steve and Virginia Kanske.
Donations in his name can be made to a charity of your choice.
A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 PM, Friday, September 8, 2017, at Lemley Chapel, Sedro-Woolley, with Pastor Lewis Benson presiding. Arrangements are under the care of Lemley Chapel, Sedro-Woolley.
