Rex was one of a kind, a true legend in the city of Grand Terrace. People traveled from miles around to get their hair cut by him and lets don't forget the free bubble gum. Thanks for all the stories and memories Rex, you will be missed by all who new you.

My wife would have no one but Rex cut my hair, saying he was the best. People drove great distances just to visit with Rex and have him cut their hair. Rex is special to all of us, and will be greatly missed. It was good knowing you Rex.

My wife would have no one touch my hair but Rex, saying he was always the best barber in town. Wherever you set up shop, Rex, in this life or the next, I'll be looking for you my friend. We'll all miss you until we meet again.

Rex was an institution in Grand Terrace! If you didn't get your hair cut at his shop you likely were sitting around back or on the side!
I went to school with Ronald and consider him a friend.
I am sorry to hear of this loss.

I had been at my barbershop in Highgrove and Mr. Orneleas had said Rex was working a chair on occasion. I had so hoped to visit him.
