Dustin Bradley Miraldi “Dusty”, 50, of Finley, ND died on June 10, 2022, in Barnes County doing what he loved. Riding motorcycle.

Dustin was born on June 21, 1971, in Elmhurst, Illinois to Dennis E. Miraldi and Linda A. Miraldi (Beck). He was the second of three boys. He grew up in Sunnyland, Illinois and then moved to Valley City during his high school years. He was a proud member of Valley City High School’s band. He graduated from Valley City High School in 1989. After high school, Dustin worked at Phoenix International where he met the love of his life, Lori Stenberg. They got married in 1996 and started their family in Illinois. There, they had two daughters, Brittany Miraldi and Madison Miraldi. They lived in Elgin, Illinois most of their lives together and just recently moved back to North Dakota to be closer to their children.

Dustin worked as a production manager in Elk Grove Village, Illinois at Edlong for 25 years and just recently moved to Finley, ND to work at Fettings Frozen Foods.
Dustin had a lot of hobbies. He loved anything to do with music, motorcycles, sports and his family. He was able to pick up any instrument and play music by ear, and thoroughly enjoyed going to concerts, even if that meant dragging his kids with him. He loved the 1996 and 1997 era Chicago Bulls and had a love for all Chicago sports- besides the White Sox. He always welcomed friends and family with opening arms and was such a loving human being.

Dustin is proceeded in death by a lot of family.

He was survived by his parents Dennis (Elaine) Miraldi of Manteno, Illinois and Linda (Dale) Beck of West Fargo, ND. He was also survived by his brothers Greg (Sarah) Miraldi, of West Fargo, ND and Dwayne (Jimie) Miraldi of West Fargo, ND. He also left behind his loving wife Lori (Stenberg) Miraldi of Finley, ND and his daughters Brittany Miraldi of Wahpeton, ND and Madison Miraldi of West Fargo, ND. He is also survived by nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, a grandma, and countless friends.

Dusty’s funeral will be held on Thursday June 16, 2022, at Boulger Funeral Home in Fargo, ND. Visitation will begin at 1pm and the service will start at 2pm. For those who can’t make it, it will be live streamed on their website and recorded for other viewing. In lieu of flowers, please make any donations to his family are appreciated.

There wasn’t much traditional about Dusty, nor was he a rule follower. He would absolutely love if everyone wore something Harley Davidson, or anything motorcycle related for that matter instead of a suit or dress.
