Rex loved to travel and meet people. Anyone who met him loved his manners and sense of humor. He beat lung cancer and was 8 years free. But COPD and heart disease kept him from doing what he loved. He loved Cortez and no matter where he traveled, he always came back here. He will be missed. At his request, no services will be held. Rest in peace my friend. You are now free to breathe and enjoy the heavens with family and great friends. God has blessed you.
