Dexter was born in Charleston, SC, on December 25, 1947 to the late Cathryn Smith Bunch and X.O. Bunch, Junior. He grew up in North Charleston, graduated from North Charleston High School and The Citadel, class of 1969.

He retired as President of Bunch Leasing Company, and Vice President of Bunch Truck Group. He was active for many years in the South Carolina Trucking Association and had served as Board Treasurer. Dexter was a past president of the North Charleston Rotary Luncheon Club and was a Paul Harris Fellow and a member of the Hibernian Society.

In addition to his wife of 51 years, Dexter is survived by his five children whom he adored: Kimberly Drake, (Robert Vestrand), Duncan Bunch, (Stephanie), Darcie Mullinax, (Kert), Anna Bunch, (Craig Herring) and Maggie Kindt, (John).

His nine grandchildren were the light of his life: Noah Drake, Isabella Drake, Caleb Vestrand, Shepherd Bunch, Dax Bunch, Kam Mullinax, Brooks Mullinax, Trux Kindt and River Kindt.
