Dexter Leroy Harris (Beans), was born on October 13, 1978 in Calvert County Maryland. Dexter was the firstborn child to Gladys Lorraine Lake. Surrounded by friends and family, he passed away on Thursday, September 6, 2018 at the University of Maryland Baltimore Medical Center in Glen Burnie, Maryland. Preceding his death, Dexter accepted Christ.
In his early years, Dexter received his education from the Calvert County Public School System. Later, became well known for his skills as a professional barber working at both “Cuttin' It Up" and "Unique Looks" barbershop. Quite the socialite, he enjoyed spending his time with friends and family, traveling, fishing, and being "the life of the party wherever he went. His teacher, MS. Ray, describes him as "a gentle and caring soul who liked everyone and loved to have a good time.” It was impossible to have known him and not have felt the warmth of his huge heart.
