I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of these two men. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. I do know what your going through. This accident gave me flashbacks of my cousin dying in 1996. Him and two of his friends passed away in a accident.
You will have your ignorant people on here that disliked these guys, but just ignore those people. They have nothing better to do. They probably knew him and didn't have enough guts to say anything to them when he was around.
RIP Ken and Dusty, I didn't know you but no one deserves to go so early.

Why do people have to have such negative stupid comments. If you don't have anything nice to say about these poor young men who lost their lives so young then don't say anything at all!!! Everyone makes mistakes!! At least this young man was trying to fix things with his wife.I'm sure these young men were nice good people it sounds like.They just made some stupid mistakes along the way like everyone else does.Unfortunately they paid with lives. To the wife cherish those last words you heard from him.Always remember he loved you and may time heal your pain!!!God bless both men and rest in peace now!!!

I feel sorry for the shallow closed minded individuals who have no sorrow for these two men. Whether they were drinking (an accusation that has no merit from what i read in the article) or not is irrelevant. What is important here is that two good men lost their lives. The Lord Jesus was perfect and without sin yet even his life was taken from him so to say that they are just another "statistic" is very rude. Regardless of what they were up to these were men with people who cared for them and affected someones life in some way so please at least have the respect to feel sorrow for the people who knew and loved them. It is amazing how many people only think about how "perfect" they are until a tragedy like this affects them. God bless the families of these two en.

I worked with Dusty for many months and never saw him as a "trouble maker" or anything even close to that. He was a hard worker with a good soul. We've had numerous deep conversations about how he needed to turn things around and mend things at home. How can people be so arrogant that they post things just because they have nothing to do? Because it's obvious that's why they even read the article! As for who's to blame, who gives a f^#@??? There is no mention ANYWHERE in either article as to the reason for the crash, so how can people think that alcohol or speed was the reason? I drive that road daily to and from work, and where they crashed is a straight section of road, so I don't think speed was the issue. Do you have any clue how many times I've had to lock up my brakes due to wildlife? If you know the reason for the crash, please contact the State Police, since I'm sure the families would love to know why they lost their loved ones. Obviously there was no REASON to suspect drugs or alcohol, since it says in the 1st article that no autopsies will be performed. If the authorities don't think it was involved, why do you???

They may not do an autopsy but I'm sure a toxocology report is pending!

You're assuming...the article said nothing about doing a toxicology test.

What is wrong with you people? THEY DIED! What does it matter how or why at this point? Children are left without fathers. Mothers have lost a child! Man I canít stand the ignorance of some people. Are you even human? Always remember what goes around comes around, one way or another!

Eastberlin81ÖI travel that road every day too and Iím thinking the speed limit is 55. I donít know because I rarely go that fast on that road for the reasons you stated. But I think itís 55 through that part of 194. Even so, the paper never said they were going over the speed limit only that the driver was going at aĒ high rate of speedĒ, 55 would be a high rate of speed. And it said nothing about drinking.

I didnít know these man nor do I know their families. I can only say my heart is broken for them, not only because they lost their loved ones but because they now have to endure the nasty, heartless disrespect of the public. Most of which is based on nothing more than garbage.

Well spoken. Please, everyone keep in mind that there are TWO families greeving and non-sense posting are uncalled for.

To the families, May you all be able to find peace in your hearts. Always remember the memories you have of these two young men, and they shall live on in your hearts forever.

Do people not have any thing better do then to put people down. These two men are dead.I only knew Dusty and he had a good heart. He was a nice person. What is in the past leave in the past no one is perfect. Why do peple have to be so nosy and put peoples personal information out there. I grew up with the Dehoff family and went to school with them and the all had good hearts. May god be with the two families through this tradegy.

So? You are so righteous as to not have committed a fraction of ilk about anything in life? Some people are prone to be less than responsible for their actions and display unfavorable behavior. I applaud those who recognize the good qualities protrayed by these men. I know a very wonderful young man but he has a problem with drinking (at home) and totally addicted to cigarettes. He would be a more healthy individual to lose the vices but due to past life trauma he seeks escapes. He realizes his mistake but the grip on his soul is tough to sever.

My condolences to these families who have lost loved ones I do not know. Thank goodness he was able to deliver love to his wife before the crucial next minutes. There have been too many of these accidents lately, young lives prematurely jerked from this life. My uncle was one of those 52 years ago and the accident was not due to drugs, drink, or hooligan maneuvers. At the wrong place, the wrong time sharing the highway with a trucker on the a curved road.

You know how it goes....When somebody dies it just the right thing to do to say something nice. My thought???? If he was "turning" his life around why was he on the way to a bar to play pool? If he was such a "good man" he would have been at home with his family and not running the bars. Besides....after hanging in the bars all weekend, why is there a need to go again on Monday night?

I feel sorry for the kids because they had a loser dad!

Actually...If you have to lie to make the deceased sound like upstanding individuals you need not say anything either.
