Dexter was a member of Unityville Baptist Church and Sun Prairie Baptist Church.  He served on various boards and was a member of the Korean War Veterans Organization.  He loved to travel, enjoyed woodworking and doing crossword puzzles. He enjoyed meeting people and making new friends. His quick wit was legendary. Most importantly, he was a man of deep faith who walked daily with his friend Jesus.
