Dustin Anthony Prater July 15, 1996 - May 24, 2014

Linden, CA...Dustin Anthony Prater was born July 15, 1996 in French Camp, CA to Frank and Shelly Prater of Stockton, CA. Dusty received his angel wings on May 24, 2014. Dustin made friends of all ages with his beautiful smile, wit, humor, and amazing personality that will always be one of a kind. He loved the outdoors and was a member of the National Rifle Association, California Houndsmen, Ducks Unlimited and many other organizations. Weekends were spent fishing, hunting, camping, racing, 4-wheeling, mudding, barbequing, working on his trucks and listening to country music next to a bon fire...



Dustin attended Linden High School; where he loved designing and welding items for his trucks and family. He was quite an accomplished mechanic for his age; he had just finished rebuilding the engine for his Toyota truck. He also attended Calaveras High School where he enjoyed 4-H, Future Farmers of America, wrestling, football, track, and band with his many friends.

Dustin will be greatly missed by his loving parents Frank and Shelly Prater, Brother Robert Prater, Great-Grandmother Juanita Garrison, Grandparents: Jeanette Hinsz and Bill Goodman, Uncle Marty Prater, Aunt Chrissy (Tim) Silkwood, Aunt Cindy (Gino) Rinaldi, Uncle Bill (Gina) Goodman. Cousins: David (Shawna) Ball, Melissa (Joshua) Powers, Chandee Pressnall, Garrett Goodman, and Courtney Goodman. He was very close to his little cousins, Austin Powers, Michael and Elizabeth Ball, Hailey Antill, and Jack Martin. He will also be missed by many more family and friends.

A visitation will be held on Friday, June 6 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at San Andreas Memorial Chapel, 254 W. St. Charles Street, San Andreas, CA. Celebration of Life will be Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 11:30 am at the Glory Bound Fellowship, 3061 Hwy 12, Burson, CA followed by Committal in the Linden Cemetery, Cady Lane, Linden, CA. A Celebration of Life Luncheon will follow at Jenny Lind School, 5100 Driver Road, Valley Springs, CA.

A Dustin Prater Memorial Fund has been established at Umpqua Bank, 87 S. Hwy 26, Valley Springs, CA 95252

My little Dust, how I miss your sweet smile. You will always hold a very dear place in my heart. You will be missed so much by our whole family. You brought such laughter into our home, telling about all your stories of hunting, mudding, and just hangin with the Redneck Crew.. You always just fit right in with the older boys and girls. They never thought of you as Roberts little annoying brother, cause you were the life of the party. You go and hunt now with God, and we will be along later to join you. Remember to find me when I get there. Grandma Judy loves you and so does Pop. RIP Dust.
