My prayers and sympathies to the surviving family members.

Sadly, the class of '71 has lost another family member.

Rex, you will be missed, and I so regret not ever thanking you for your honorable and courageous military service to our nation.

Fair winds, my friend.

Semper Fi.

I saw Rex back in June or July of this year at some retail location. As always, he and I jumped into conversation. It seemed that 40 plus years never changed our line of communication. I will miss him because it was always so easy to talk with him.Via con dios mi amigo.
