Dustin Nabors grew up in Midland, TX where he played football and, after high school, worked in the oil field industry for a short time. He graduated from Texas A & M Fire Academy and was employed by RTFC in Corpus Christi, Texas. In 2005, while implanted as a firefighter in the Citgo Oil Refinery in Corpus Christi, Dustin met Heather Klingaman, originally of Perry, Oklahoma. They were married later that year in October of 2005. Dustin’s mother, Ellen, currently resides in Texas, after getting to spend several years living with Dustin and Heather in Arizona.
Dustin was hired by Ditch Witch of Arizona to be a Utility Equipment Specialist and began his Ditch Witch career employed by Heather’s parents, David and Bev Klingaman. Dustin and Heather spent the first two weeks of marriage in Perry, OK, while they attended the Ditch Witch Factory Training Program. After two years in the industry, Dustin was promoted to Territory Manager representing the entire equipment line. Over the next few years, he was recognized for his hard work, earning five Bronze and three Silver Ace Club awards. He was elected by the Ditch Witch factory to be part of the “Orange Edge Program” designed for up-and-coming dealership employees who were recognized as “doers” in the industry. Dustin was named Sales Manager for Ditch Witch of Arizona in January of 2018 and helped drive the company’s impressive growth. There will be a Dustin shaped void in the lives of his Ditch Witch of Arizona family.
Beyond his successful career, however, Dustin will be remembered for his unforgettable personality. He loved a good banter and he would good-naturedly pick on his fellow employees about sports, politics, and other subjects, but he always brought smiles to their faces! He was a good listener and gave wise counsel to his family and friends
Dustin and Heather brought two wonderful children into this world, Lily (10) and Eli (9). Dustin was a devoted father and heavily involved in their sporting activities while Heather home-schooled them daily. His most enjoyable times were coaching his kids in baseball and softball on nights and weekends. He loved being home every night after work and on weekends to spend time with family.
Dustin is survived by his wife Heather, his children Dylan, Lily and Eli, his mother Ellen, younger brother, Tyson, (who adores his Bubba)! Many loving family members, friends, customers and colleagues have been impacted by Dustin and will miss him tremendously.
