Glenn George Rex

April 24, 1926April 15, 2020

Glenn George Rex was blessed. He had a loving and supportive wife of 63 years, Ethel Horvath Rex who preceeded him in death. They had four children, married to wonderful spouses, who in turn gave him 12 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren and another due in September. Throughout his long life he experienced trials(personal and financial), hardships, WWII, disappointment, loss of loved ones, cancer himself and in some of those he loved. In everything he went through and everything we go through, we have a choice to make. We can turn to the Lord for guidance and salvation, or we can turn bitter. Time and again, Glenn turned to the Lord, and we know he now is with Him. “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12

Children are David (Karen, nee Lantz), Keith, Nancy Moritz(Brad), and Merry Poe(Greg). 12 Grandchildren – Courtney Rex Crawford(Jason), Jessica Rex Leadbetter(Kyle), Tyler Rex(Claire).

The first things I think of when I think of Glenn are the lunches that he and Irene Clyde and I had at Mary Yoders. We had such fun. And this is where I really got to know the essence of the man, his extreme love of God and family.

He was such a good man and good friend, and I loved him. What an example of how one should live one's life. He will always hold a big place in my heart.
