On August 29, 2004 he was baptized into the membership of Statesboro Primitive Baptist Church in Statesboro, Ga.

He was joined in Holy Matrimony to Vivian Lorene Gablemann on September 17, 1950, at Bethany Baptist Church. They began married life on a farm near Ash Grove, Kansas. He served in the U.S. Army. After being discharged, both Rex and Vivian began working on college degrees, desiring to be teachers.

He served as a visiting professor at Clemson University and West Virginia University, and was a consultant to several other universities, industries, public schools, and governmental agencies.

Here on earth we have no enduring home, but we seek the one, which is to come. God reached down and gave Rex final victory on March 20, 2015. Because of his faith in Jesus Christ he has joined his beloved wife, parents, family and friends in heaven. In his life he knew that the resurrection is not something we wait for but is already ours; the believer no longer belongs to death but through Jesus Christ belongs to life eternal with Him.
