Dusty Giles

Dusty Giles was born November 17, 1988 in a hospital in Des Moines, Iowa, the son of Ted and Christine Cobb Giles.

> Dusty lived in Creston, Newton and other communities over the years. He married Darise Krumwiede on September 18, 2010 and on October 10, 2011, the joy of his life, Tehya Radell Giles, was born. When Dusty was growing up, the nickname "Donut" was given to him but because he grew up tall, and thin, the "Donut" was shortened to "Nut"! Dusty was a "jack of all trades" and did some painting and plumbing work. He had a passion for fishing and him and his dad were fishing partners. Dusty loved loud music and going to concerts. Many times, Dusty was the designated driver for people and he didn't approve, or like, those who drove drunk.

> Dusty passed away September 28, 2017. He was preceded in death by his grandmother Lois Jarnigan and grandpa LeRoy Giles.

> Those left to cherish and share his memory include his wife Darise and daughter Tehya Radell Giles of Newton, IA; father Ted Giles of Creston, IA and mother Christine Cobb Giles of North Carolina; grandmother Elsie Creveling of Creston, IA; siblings Jeremy Lance Giles, Skylar LeRoy Lillie, Deon Curtis Giles, Shyane Renae Bird, and Elsie Lorraine Giles; aunts, uncles, other relatives, and many friends.

I am so saddened by this. He was a son to me. I cannot get back for memorial but know my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dusty, you will never know how much I truly love you. Through the good and the bad, you always remained my best friend. You have always known me better than I have known myself, just as I knew you better than you or anyone else did. My heart breaks more than anyone could possibly comprehend. I am left with a void that will never be filled. I would give anything for you to hold me and kiss my forehead one last time. Through all of my regrets, at least I can say, and know in my heart, that we shared the happiest times of our lives together. Our baby girl will always know how much you loved her- this is my promise to you! I LOVE YOU MORE!
