“Debbie and family. So sorry to hear of Rex's passing. I've always known Rex to be the same mild mannered person. No matter where he saw you he was bound to speak. We would always have a laugh. May God give you all comfort in the days ahead. Heaven has definitely gained another angel. Rip Rex and fly high with the Angels.”
