To the family of Rex Babin,
My sincere condolences. I admired Rex's gift for capturing the essence of an event or political issue in a single drawing. Many times I cut out his cartoon and pinned it up or shared it with others. I still have one on my bulletin board from several years ago. I will greatly miss his contribution to the Bee and to society at large.
Sincerely,
April 06, 2012
It is a sad day, when someone of such potential is taken from expressing current events in cartoons as Rex's did. He creative art was always a well thought out body of work, with a message clearly stated leaving me with a smile on my face.

Rex made a difference in the lives of so many and he made people think and see things from different angles-brilliance manifested. Thank you, Rex, for all you gave through your amazing gift of art. My thoughts are with you and your family, especially your son, Sebastian.

Rex proved to be the rare exception to the rule, "No one is irreplaceable."

I was not a fan of Babin's liberal cartoons, but the one of God's hands holding up the plane on the Hudson was brilliant. I hope that his wife and son realize that his craft did indeed speak to the fact that "a picture is worth a thousand words," and their husband and father excelled at his job-no matter what one's political beliefs. He will be remembered as a Sacramento icon-biting wit, exceptional talent, and passed too soon. My sincere condolences to his family and may your memories comfort you in the coming years.

To my doubles rowing mate 01-04. You touched many people. The humor today at the ceremony was very comforting and captured your spirit. Pete told me a few of your rowing mates etched your name in a well known spot. I stopped at the REX! and looked across the causeway to the place we rowed long, hard and well together. We will miss you on and off the water.

Mr. Babin,
Sadly I didn't have the pleasure of knowing you. However, I feel truly blessed and honored to have been a part in celebrating your life! It was the greatest pleasure singing in rememberance of you and I will hold the stories shared about you in my heart. Listening to your loved ones speak, you are truly a beautifully spirited and gifted creation of God! I wish more people were like you and shared your attitude towards life, love and family; I know I will do my best to do so!! <3

Rex, you made rowing the brotherhood that it is supposed to be, even for us guys well out of college. Competitive but you never took it too serious. You realized long ago that life is too precious for that. You spoke up for what needed to be said when most others didn't want to rock the boat. Outside the boat you were a great friend in all regards. Thanks for being you and I will never forget you.
