William T Dust - Obit help please!

I have been having the most difficulty finding any sort of death or obit info on William Theodore Dust. He was born in Germany 25 Jul 1853 and I just found his death date in Detroit 10 Jul 1933. I can not find any other records. He has said to have lived in Birmingham in his later years, he held many different city positions in the city of Detroit. Please contact me for additional info or how I may go about digging further. Thanks!

Same website but a different book on pp 210-213- also has a photo

Title: The city of Detroit, Michigan, 1701-1922; / Clarence M. Burton, editor-in-chief, William Stocking, associate editor, Gordon K. Miller, associated editor.
Author: Burton, Clarence Monroe, 1853-1932.
Collection: Michigan County Histories and Atlases

The Livonia Civic Center Library has the book in the Adult Rference area (at least I think it is the same book) and would probably make either a copy of the pages for you or would scan them and email them to you.

The Michigan County death notices have been indexed and are undergoing arbitration. Hopefully their images will be available in the near future at the www.familysearch.org website of the Mormon Church.

Since you have his death date, download the Detroit Pub library Obit form http://www.detroit.lib.mi.us/research-resources and pay the fees and it will probably have place of burial, family members listed. You can also look in the Detroit directory on-line thru ancestry.com for his address/name and it would list adults living at the same address.
