MY SYMPATHIES GO OUT TO REX TRAILER'S FAMILY I'M 53 AND STILL REMEMBER REX ON EVERY SAT AND SUN MORNING. HE IS MY CHILD HOOD HERO WISH THERE WERE MORE OF THEM TODAY. I REMEMBER GOING TO MILFORD WHEN I WAS 7 SEEING REX PERFORM
I MET REX AT WORCESTER CENTER AT AN AMBULANCE SHOW IN 1979 I WILL FOREVER CHERISH THAT DAY. I WILL NEVER FORGET REX, MAY GOD BLESS HIM AND MAY HE REST IN PEACE. I HOPE TO ATTEND A MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR HIM WHEN ONE IS PLANNED.

Rex Trailer

Out of the West He Came One Fall
On a Golden Horse and Riding Tall
A
Trick-Riding Rope-Spinning
Singing Cowboy
Here to Bring Thrills To Us All

Howdy Rex!
Came the Call
As He Rode from the Range
And Over the Knoll
To a Live Ranch House Scene
Where Lessons of Life
Young Folks Could Glean
Appeared Each Week
On the Living Room Screen

Rex Lived His Cowboy Code
Honorable Behavior- Without Any Waiver
Respect- Everyone and Everything Patriotism More Than Justa Song to Sing

Television Pioneer, Broadcaster,Teacher
Who Led by Example and Not asa Preacher

The day
President Kennedy was Gunned Down
More Than Words Could Say
Rex Gave His Guns Away
A Man of Peace Among Men
Rex Was Never Seen
Wearing His Cowboy Guns Again

For More Than Four Score
Not Nearly Enough
For We All Wanted More
Of Our True Cowboy Hero
And His Western Folklore

Rex Trailer
Boston's Cowboy
and
National Treasure
whose life
Enriched So Many- Beyond Any Measure

So sad to hear. Rex Trailer and his show brought such joy to this little girl who pretended he was her daddy, visiting through Boomtown every weekend, when in reality she never knew when she would see her daddy. Rex filled a hole in my childhood.
