Service department recognition by Brandon Myron



Dustin Loghry

On with the show... the next contestant is Dustin Loghry (pronounced Louw-wry).

Dustin has been with Lone Star Since May of 2016 and started in the installation department where he learned to get almost everything done. He has since been promoted to service technician. I keep telling him it’s a PRO-motion not a demotion.



Anyway, Dustin enjoys all six (yes 6) of his children (I think there is something in the water in Huntsville). “I love muscle cars and trucks and anything that’s a Chevy. I don’t own a Ford because I cannot afford to keep them running.”


Dustin and his wife are in the process of building their forever home on 20 acres in the woods (probably should quit drinking the water out there).

Thank you for everything you do and the commitment you have made to making your community safer and Lone Star stronger. Dustin also has pretty fantastic skills at Photo Shop. Just ask Jay.

Next up for recognition is Dustin Kelley. Dustin has been with Lone Star in the Inspection department since April of 2019. He spent 20 years with the Springdale fire department protecting and serving the community (I think he just really likes fire).


In his spare time he likes to ride his side-by-side too fast and get muddy. He has a strange attachment to his lawnmower (ride, Dustin ride). He really enjoys the occasional comment on social media to get things stirred up. Dustin has a real passion for life safety and is fantastic asset for Lone Star.


Thank you for all that you do. He also sports a pretty good hair style if I do say so myself.

Service department recognition by Brandon Myron


Next up on our list of all stars Michael (STU) Best. Stu is our lone service technician out of the Shreveport office. Stu started with Lone Star in 07/10/2017. He enjoys long walks on the beach and playing flight simulator games.

He didn’t send any pictures so his employee profile will have to do. If you get a chance to see the posters in each office he is the golden retriever (That is what happens when you don’t get your pictures to Missy).

Thank you for everything you do and all the stuff you seem to be able to magically fix. Oh and the impeccable notes on all your service tickets its like being there in person.

Service department recognition by Brandon Myron


Today we are recognizing Aaron Andrews in the Inspection department. Aaron has been with Lone Star since 09/09/2019 and works out of the Little rock office.


In his spare time he likes to hunt and fish and also enjoys the occasional street fight I mean kickboxing. He also likes to spend time with his family. Aaron has recently got into grilling ribs especially (I speak from experience its an addictive hobby).

If he was able to have dinner with any four people ever in the history of mankind it would be his wife, son, mother, and father. One of his family traditions is hanging stockings on the ceiling and listening to Christmas music. I think I would like for him to unpack that one a bit. He is also related to Derek Fisher.

Thank you Aaron for all that you do.
