Charles "Chuck" Dexter M.D. Notice
Dexter M.D., Charles "Chuck"79, returned to his heavenly home on June 26, 2014. Charles was born in Bimidji, Minnesota on October 25, 1934. He was the fifth son of Stephen and Mildred Dexter. He was raised in East Lansing, Michigan and attended Michigan State University from 1952 to 1955. He went to the University of Michigan Medical School in 1955 and received his M.D. degree in 1959. After his internship and radiology residency at Michigan hospitals, he would spend the next 37 years in local hospitals in the Central Florida area. Most of his career was spent in practice with Dr. John Johnson in Deltona and Sanford, except for a two year stint in 1966 to 1968 for the U.S Army Medical Corp. He was employed until 2000. Charles stayed busy in retirement with his love of playing the piano. Though Charles was never formally trained, he enjoyed sitting in with area professionals from time to time. He even left some recorded material behind for his family to enjoy. Charles spent many hours at the Orlando Country Club playing golf with friends he truly admired. He also loved to travel and was even able to attend the British Open last summer. Since 1983, Charles counted himself extremely fortunate to have found a like-minded group of men and women of all ages that lived in the fellowship of the spirit. Initially encouraged by his beloved late wife Patricia (2002), he sought and received support from their common program that allowed him to spend his later years in a loving and vital world that was always regarded as positive. Charles is survived by his three children Alison Dexter, Julie Dexter Johnson (Larry), and Larry Dexter (Denisa), and his four grandchildren Morgan, Matthew (Matt), Victoria (Tori), and Maxwell (Max). He also had many wonderful and supportive friends who made his life full and interesting until the end. We will all miss his musical talent, quick wit, and words of wisdom. A celebration of Charles S. Dexter's life will be on Monday, June 30, 2014 at 11AM at Northland Church, 530 Dog Track Road in Longwood, FL.
