Last night when my husband went to get water from our refrigerator, the water would not shut off after he removed his glass. It shuts off a few seconds later. The same goes for the ice maker. I would like to try and fix this myself and believe that it could be the dispenser. Does that sound right? It looks like a pretty easy home repair. Thanks in advance for your help!

You're right on the money! Replace the module:
Dispenser-Module 242100001 Order now for same day shipping. 365 day return policy. RepairClinic.com

Try taking the old one out and spraying the microswitch(s) with WD40. You can also use it as a cleaner for other moving parts. Dry it well when done.
