Dexter Mathis, 88, of Kearneysville, WV passed away March 7, 2021.
Dexter was born October 19, 1932 in North Carolina to the late Frank and Shirley (Shytle) Mathis. He loved camping with his 5 kids, all boys. He was an avid jokester and prankster, leaving his loved ones wondering when they should take him seriously or not. He never cussed, and was always a gentleman, but was also very protective.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Shirley (Parham) Mathis; and a son, Charles Mathis, who passed in 2019.
Surviving to cherish Dexter’s memory are his children, Gordon Mathis, Pete Nicholson, Rob Mathis, and Jeff Mathis; 12 grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren; and other family and friends.
A visitation will be held 1-3pm Friday March 12, 2021 at Resthaven Funeral Home & Community Center, 9501 Catoctin Mtn Hwy (US 15 N) Frederick, where a funeral service will take place at 3pm. Interment with military honors will follow at Resthaven Memorial Gardens.
