    I’ve known Dexter 30 + years, for that entire time he’s always been a best friend. I could share many funny stories with you of our military time as well as non military time. We traveled together with our wives. Orlando, Las Vegas, Washington DC. Made many trips and get togethers with the foreign exchange students. I will miss you terribly my dear friend.

    I have a lot of fun memories of Dexter especially when we were growing up going to church together the same church and also with the RS at church going camping and also spend the night at each others houses one of my best memories of Dexter is out at my grandmothers we used to climb trees out there and there was one tree next to the house that we climbed all the time and Dexter left his name carved into one of the limbs on that tree and kill that tree was torn down that it was there
    for for all to see for a long time he will truly be missed
