Frederick Dexter

Frederick Dexter, an admirable and honorable man, died on February 6, 2018, at the age of 75.  Fred is survived by his loving wife, Chris, his children and their spouses: Terri & Mark, Jim, Wayne & Tracy, Kim & Steve, Stephanie, Tiffanie & Rob, and 11 grandchildren: Justin, Christian, Lauren, Nicole, Ryan, Matthew, Jake, Dora, Karmalena, Abbie, and Brynlee.  Fred dedicated his career to law enforcement.  His tenure began with the Connecticut State Police, included years with the Ogden Police Department and 25 years with the Houston Police Department.  During his “retirement”, he enjoyed working at Clear Lake Regional Hospital, where once again he made a positive impact on people’s lives.  Fred was kind to all, loved to share laughter with his friends and family, and lived every day to the best of his ability.  He will be forever missed.

The family will receive guests from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., followed by a service at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 15, at Crowder Funeral Home in Webster, Texas.

  8. Fred, I am missing you so much. You were a very wise man who expressed that to my mother when she was in the hospital several months before she died. Mom was in and out of the hospital and somehow you always knew she was there. You, Bob and I would meet in the cafeteria and have a little coffee or hot chocolate and just pass some time talking. I loved your laugh – it made me smile. You had a kind word for everyone and I so enjoyed that inner goodness you had – a kind word for all. My mother (90 years old) loved you dearly. Sometimes you would come to her room just to say a few words and hold her hand. She loved you and will be so happy to see you again. Someone said that you were an honorable man. What a compliment, Fred. I am so proud to have known you and especially all you did for mom. I love you and miss you.

    Bob and Amy Shadle
