May 25, 1982-May 16, 2013

Dustin Clay Worley was taken from us unexpectedly on May 16, 2013 at the young age of 31. Dustin was born May 25, 1981 in Glenwood Springs, Colorado; graduating from GSHS with the class of 1999. He continued to work in the valley as an accomplished plumber. At the time of his death he was employed by Frank Brennen Construction; residing in Rifle, with hismiracle, Amera and his lifetime partner, Erin Henneson and her daughter Eileen. Dustin will always be remembered for his smile, sense of humor and kindness felt by all who’s lives he touched. He leaves behind his daughter, Amera “Bear” Worley; mother, Sandy Jewell; brother, Jesse (Tiffany) Worley; niece, Zoey Worley; partner, Erin Henneson & her daughter Eileen; grandmother, Geri Jewell; and extended family and friends too numerous to mention. Memorial donations can be made at any local Alpine Bank in the name of Amera Worley. A celebration of Dustin’s life will be held at a later date. Online condolences at
