Obituary of Charles "Chuck" Edgar Dexter

Charles "Chuck" Edgar Dexter passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, August 8, 2020, at the age of 63. He fought bravely until the end. Loving son of his late parents, Wilhemnina and Charlie Dexter. He will be remembered by many cousins, friends, family and by his beloved dog, Seven.

Chuck's favorite pastimes were golfing, fishing, watching hockey, cheering on the Detroit Red Wings, and he enjoyed old shows like Green Acres. The Welland and Niagara River were his main choices for fishing adventures, but he would occasionally take his boat up north for a change of scenery. He also loved bowling, whether it was playing himself or watching it on TV. Chuck will be remembered for his generous heart and for always wanting to help the people around him.

Chuck hired me when I was 18 to work at St. Catherines General and I know almost for a fact it was because I made a joke that he laughed at during the interview. He was a genuine fellow, I knew that despite just being a kid and though I hadn’t had contact with him for 20 years, he still holds a place with me for giving me that start RIP Cha-Cha
