Loudonville, Ohio

Dustin “Debo” Billy Ray Sprang passed away Saturday afternoon, April 11, 2020, in Newark Medical Hospital. He was 35.

He was born March 20, 1985, in Mansfield to parents Raymond Sprang & Nancy McBride. Raised in Loudonville, Dustin attended Loudonville High School with the class of 2003 and lived locally until most recently when he purchased his first home in Butler. Dustin worked for Goodman Network in Akron as a service technician for the past couple of years.

Dustin loved to have a good time, hang out with his friends, and drink a crisp Busch Light. He also enjoyed riding 4-wheelers and dirt bikes, playing fantasy football, mushroom hunting, boating on Pleasant Hill Lake, listening to loud rock music, and playing Xbox with his niece Rayna. He greatly loved his nieces and nephews and cats Pingo and Pongo Sprang, and he will be missed by all who love him.

Dustin is survived by his mother Nancy McBride and her fiance Brent Lotz; his father Raymond Sprang; stepbrother Brian (Shelly) Sprang of Hartville; step-sister Terri (Dan) Arnholt of Mansfield; nieces and nephews Rayna Rae Kurtz; Rayson Matthew Evans, McKenna, and Daniel Arnholt, and Ben and Sean Sprang.

He was preceded in death by his sister Lacy Kay Sprang; and her fiancé Matt Evans; and Maternal Grandparents Bill and Margie McBride.

  • Many prayers for you guys and our deepest sympathy for the loss of Dustin. I remember how cute he and Lacey both were as kids and his white blond hair and mischievous smile. You can be proud as parents of the kids you raised for sure. Still miss hearing the Lacey laugh at Kroger every time I’m there. Good kids!

    I’m so very sorry to hear of the loss of Dustin. Lacey was my dearest friend at Kroger. She talked a lot of her brother. Just all her family in general. May God hold you tight during this time. Just know he’s with his sissy again.
    God BLESS
