Officer Duyst was killed after being electrocuted when he jumped into water which had an electric charge in it. He was off duty on a family outing at Spring Lake when another man jumped off a pier into water which had an electric charge due to an electrical cord which had come in contact with the water. When Officer Duyst saw the man calling for help he dove off of his boat in an attempt to rescue the man but was also electrocuted.

Officer Duyst was survived by his wife and two daughters.
