    We were so sad to hear of Dexter’s passing. We have many fond memories of him, especially at the Van Nest little league field. Our deepest sympathy to Roseann and their family. May he rest in peace.

    Dear Roseann & Family, Knowing Dex all these years & calling him a Friend has been an Honor.
    I remember all the card games on Friday nights in the building and fun we had through the years.
    Serving with Dex at Fort Schyler, we became good friends.
    He will surely be Missed.
    Rest in Peace my Friend. Semper Fi
