So happy you have precious memories of your life together..they will warm your heart and keep him near you.May you be comforted knowing we share in your grief..HUGS to you and yours ❤️
I too met Rex through our golf group. He became much more than a golfing buddy.Rex was a true friend - he’d literally do anything for a friend.When Rex mentioned Melissa he always spoke lovingly. Never, ever did he state anything other than “I’m blessed to be married to her”, or similar.We’ve lost a good friend.-David Daugherty
Rest in peace old friend.John and Kay

My condolences on Rex's passing. Rex was my Mom's financial advisor for several years and later worked with me as the Trustee for her Trust. It was a pleasure to have known and worked with Rex. He was a good, honest man and I am very appreciative for the assistance he provided to my family.
Melissa and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am sure God will watch over you during this sad time and I’m sure Rex would want all of you to live life to the fullest and celebrate his life with joy and happiness in your hearts. Hugs to you all.

Melissa, we are sadden to hear about Rex. What great times Jack had standing by the fence with Rex on the other side reminiscing about old songs. Love and prayers to you and your family. Jack & Karen Jumper
Rex was a great guy who adapted so easily into your Osceola “family”. He was loved by all and was so respected for being such a loving husband and caregiver for Osceola’s high energy “Wonderwoman" during her health struggles. You all so welcomed Jane into our family circle and I can never thank you and Rex enough for your warmness and laughter!Thank you Rex for your smile and positive attitude!Bryan Brackin
