Dexter never slowed down, throughout his retirement he was a substitute teacher, truck driver and owned a cigar lounge.

One of the proudest moments in his life was the birth of his son, Dexter Cardell Fuller, Jr. They had a bond that transcended time, and his son was his pride and joy. Family was everything to Dexter. He didn’t just tell you he loved you, he showed you his love through his actions. Dexter had a heart of gold and loved unconditionally, and no he wasn’t perfect, but his love was. No matter where he was or what he was doing, if you needed him, he would be there. Dexter had a great and deep love for his family and friends which will live on forever.

A Fallen Limb

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says,
“Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times,
the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived
while I was strong.
Continue my heritage,
I’m counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely
the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease,
my soul is at rest.
Remembering all,
how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions,
no matter how small.
Go on with your life,
don’t worry about falls.
I miss you all dearly,
so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes
we’re together again.”
