Happened to think of Rex, and made my way to this page. I worked with Rex in the tiny art department of the Newport Beach Daily Pilot. My first real job, and he was as good a boss as he was a friend. We were all happy for him when he got his big break to intern with the Denver Post, but it was hard not to grieve, because things just weren't the same without him. We lost touch over the years, but I figured sooner or later, we'd bump into each other. And then I heard he had passed away. It's funny to feel the loss of someone you haven't talked with in 20-some years, but I do. And as we Orthodox say, memory eternal.

I am so sorry to hear of his passing. As a regular times Union reader, I missed him greatly when he moved to the Sacramento bee. His wife and family have my deepest condolences. He was one-of-a-kind. Rosalie Powers

tears in my eyes for the loss of Rex. His cartoon from the airplane rescued by the hands of God is in my kitchen and computer room. May he rest in peace

I knew Rex right after he graduated college. We had some mutual friends from San Diego and we would go out drinking in and around Orange County. Dreaming and planning our futures. we were so young and full of promise and hope then. I lost track of him over the years until this article popped up, very sad. We always had great conversations, not the menial, narrow ones that mostly occur in bars, but meaty political, social, and spiritual conversations,,,sometimes it helped when were trying to pick up girls or look smart, but mostly it was for the love of good conversation,,,he said something to me that I never forgot,,, "we're in our early 20s, let's enjoy it, this is going to be some of the best years in our lives." i was sad when he left for Denver, but now sadder still.

I followed his columns and drawings regularly. He was a class act and left this journalist/columnist world way too soon. Fond memories for the family to get through this. God bless.
