Dexter Owen Corliss
January 2, 1950 ~ November 11, 2023 (age 73) 73 Years Old
Dexter was a Vietnam-era veteran who served in the United States Air Force. After being discharged, he earned his law degree from William Mitchell Law School. Dexter had many talents, such as his extensive knowledge of history, the amount of Coca-Cola he could drink, and his natural ability to strike up a conversation with anybody. However, his biggest passion in life was his family. He would brag about his children and grandchildren to anyone who would listen. His kind and gentle heart will be missed.
Dexter is preceded in death by parents Paul and Frances Corliss, and sister Carrie Jo (Bob) Blaha.
He is survived by daughter Beth (Glen) Kraetsch, son Paul (Rachel) Corliss, grandchildren Jameson, Macoy, Owen, Cooper, and Casey, sisters Bridget (Bob) Pavlak and Genevieve Andrusko, several nieces and nephews, and Evelyn and Billy.
A funeral service will be held at 10am on Wednesday, November 22, at O’Halloran and Murphy (575 Snelling Ave. S). A visitation will begin an hour prior at 9am. This service will be livestreamed.
