Dustin Ladd, 25, of Cumberland passed unexpectedly December 12, 2019, at his home.
He was born on October 10, 1994, in Rice Lake to John and Julie (Ladd) Paulson. “This is my brother, he’s cool. I couldn’t ask for a better brother. I don’t know what I would do without you bro.” - Dayne
Dustin was a kind-hearted and respectful man who would give you the shirt off his back if you asked. He could always be counted on to lend a hand. Dustin had a fun sense of humor and could always bring a smile to your face. His younger brother Dayne gave him the nickname of “Pumpkin.” On occasion Dustin would have a mischievous grin on his face, letting you know he was up to something.
He was a passionate hunter, fisherman and lover of nature. He often took walks in the woods and had a way of attracting animals. Dustin loved the long drives he and his dad would take looking for deer. Dustin was very proud of the 11 point buck that he got while bow hunting. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
