Rex was one of the best people I know. He was always there to lend a helping hand. He was one of the very few who reached out to check on me during the pandemic. I will always remember him with love and gratitude for being such a good soul. ❤

Rex was a dedicated Northwestern Wildcat. He always said "Us Wildcats have to stick together and take care of each other". Recently Rex and I shared a number of Lunches, Dinners and take out to his house. We often went antique shopping and He loved coin collecting. I am going to miss that twinkle in his eye and his awesome smile.

My good friend Rex since 1971 at P.G.C.C. where he met his wife Laura. They had one son Brent that Rex worshiped. Rex loved duckpin bowling, pizza, Ron Jon’s surf shop & collecting old 45’s & coke memorabilia. In his early years he worked at Billy’s Subs at 139th St. in O.C. MD., took trips to Cocoa Beach Fl., we frequented Pier Street Annex in the late 70’s dancing the night away. Rex loved The Beach Boys & class reunions from Northwestern High School. After retiring from the DC Fire Dept. & Safeway, Rex started working at Fed Ex where he became known as Fed Ex Rex. In the last couple of years his focus was on his son Brent & the two grandkids. He would hVe dinner once a week, usually at Jerry’s Seafood in Bowie. He loved Scallops. Rex was a true character, one in a lifetime. He had satisfied his bucket list & was content knowing his son was successful, happy & turned out to be quite a man himself. Rex had no regrets so don’t be sad because was accomplished all he set out to do. R.I.P. my good friend & give him hell in heaven.
