Dustin McEntire

Dustin Reed McEntire, 30, of North Platte, passed away October 6, 2013 at his home. He was born October 12, 1982 in North Platte to Ricky and Debra Campbell McEntire. Dustin attended North Platte High School. He worked at Valentino’s and other various jobs. On July 16, 2007 he was involved in a car accident which left him paralyzed. He overcame many obstacles after the accident, rehabilitating, with the help of Quality Living Incorporated, to the point of being independent and being able to return home to North Platte. He was an inspiration to many people who watched him come back from his injuries. He loved online gaming, music, and eating tacos! Everyone will remember his goofy smile.
