Albion: Robert George “Bob” Dexter, age 73, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on September 15, 2020. He was born April 3, 1947 in Brooklyn, NY to the late George and Irene (Gertzen) Dexter.
Bob was known by many in the community as a social butterfly and was always willing to volunteer wherever he could. He really loved his sweets, never complained about anything and was always willing to give advice, where he could often times be heard saying “bottom line is”. Bob served his country in the U.S. Army from 1965-1969, served as Scoutmaster for many years, and was proud of his greenbelt in Isshiaryu Karate. Bob was very proud of receiving the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award from the Clarendon Lions Club.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sons-in-law, Wayne Pocza and James Kipler.
Bob is survived by his loving wife of 22 years, Pamela, children, Lisamarie Pocza, Bobby (Kimberly) Dexter, Amber (Chris Miller) Kipler, Meghan Cox, Stephanie Cox, grandchildren, Thomas, Rebecca (Shane), Isabella (fiancé Jordan), Rosalynn, Dalton, Clayton, Abigail, great-granddaughter, Sophia, special cousin, Buzzy Gertzen, as well as countless friends.
