I never met Rex, but I have worked with Wendy for over 10 years now. I have always enjoyed her stories about her father and family that felt like I kind of knew a little part of Rex and her family. Wendy has been a great friend and co worker and I hope she will continue to share her stories of her father with us all.
I am truly sorry for their loss.

We will always remember seeing Rex and his family up Steelhead Fishing. We would sit around the fire and visit. He was an awesome man. We knew him from farming and the EMT'S in Robert's. He will be missed.
