Rex & Wanda were the examples I chose to follow for my own faith walk, when I was a child. My parents Aubrey & Doris Rogers loved both Rex & Wanda dearly, just as I do. Rex had a way of making you feel that all was right in the world, because of his wise, peaceful, kind presence. My love and prayers go out to all the Owens family. I know this is a hard road to travel down.

Wanda and family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all the family at this difficult time. We are never ready to give up our loved ones. I am so sorry I just found out a few minutes ago and have not even been able to reach my dad. We won't be there in person but will have you in our prayers. Love, Barbara Orbison Bailey

The world sure lost "a good one" when we lost Rex. He will be greatly missed by those of us whose lives he touched so quietly and deeply. May the Lord bless this special family.

Rex was a great neighbor and will be missed. Our little close knit neighborhood is dwindling down. I remember playing with the kids in the playhouse and have very fond memories. Didn't matter whose house you were at, the parents had each other's permission to discipline each others kids. To the family, your Dad was one of the nicest people I know.

I was saddened by the news today of Rex's passing, 35 years ago Rex took a brand spanking new, still wet behind the ears rookie under his wing when I first came out of training and was assigned to Pump 18. Rex was the Engineer at Station 18 at the time and helped teach me to drive the old 5 speed Ward-LaFrance engine there. He was one if the most low keyed, calm and professional people I ever had the honor to work with. Several years after his retirement, I made a fire 2 doors down from his home, as I came out of the fire and took off my air mask and helmet, Rex came up and gave me a big hug. I remember the two rookies on the truck with me that day, wondering who the heck that old guy was hugging the Lt. Rex and I talked about the good old days for a few minutes and he congratulated me on making Lt. before I had to go back to work, unfortunately that was the last time I spoke with him. I know the good Lord needed a good Engineer to drive one of his trucks in Heaven, so he called you home. Rest easy old friend, I look forward to seeing you again some day and catching up on old times.
