Obituary

A Distinguished Gentlemen
“For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endureth for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” Psalms 30:5

Mr. Dexter Diondre Lynah, Jr., son of Dexter & Edith Davis Lynah, Sr.; was born January 24, 1999, in Charleston, South Carolina.  During the morning hours of Saturday: July 30, 2022; Dexter departed this earthly shore as he slipped into his eternal slumber with his Heavenly Father. At an early age, Dexter joined Emmanuel Baptist Church of Jacksonboro, SC, under the leadership of the late Reverend Harry Chaplin.  As he grew older, he continued in his faith walk, under the leadership of Reverend Dr. Annie P. Holmes and Reverend Sean Aiken, Associate Pastor.  

As a youth, Dexter was active, competitive and an out-going individual. He began playing sports at age four and continued giving it his “all in all” until he graduated from high school.  Starting in T-Ball, then moving up to baseball; he did it all. He also played travel basketball and football.  

Receiving his formal education in the public schools of Colleton County, and was a Colleton County High School, class of 2017 graduate. He continued to further his educational studies and enrolled in South Carolina State University.  During his tenure at SC State, Dexter was inducted into the Alpha Lambda Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. He accepted the invitation into “Brotherhood” and continued reaching for the stars. He had a drive like no other and this would lead him to receive the Presidential Scholar Award for three consecutive years.  On May 6, 2022, Dexter walked across the stage to receive his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from SC State University. 

Affectionately called “Dex”, he was a truly unique individual. A son, a brother, a grandson, an uncle, a nephew, a cousin and a devout friend; he was a distinguished gentleman. He loved his family and friends and showed it in all that he did.  As his departure leaves a void, his memories will leave a legacy that will forever be cherished.

Preceding him in death are his grandparents, Herman, and Alfredia Davis.

Left on this side to forever remember his portraits of life are parents Dexter & Edith Lynah, Sr., Walterboro, SC; loving sister, Karen (Cecil) Lynah, Walterboro, SC; his nephew and his heart, Ky’ Nique Murray, Walterboro, SC; grandmother, Ruth Lynah, Cottageville, South Carolina; aunts, Vonda (Edward) Holmes, Jacksonboro, South Carolina, Lynette (Ricky) Green, Parkers Ferry, SC, and Latrina (Greg) Holmes of Cottageville, South Carolina; uncles, Gordon Lynah and Kenny Lynah, both of Bradenton, Florida, and Douglass Lynah, Cottageville, South Carolina; fifteen grandaunts; five granduncles; along with a number of cousins and friends, too many to name by name but all who truly cherished him.
