Rex Olen Chancellor, 68, of Kansas City, Missouri, passed away peacefully on July 9, 2018 at St. Luke’s Hospital. Rex was born June 14, 1950 in Kansas City, Missouri to Olen Warner Chancellor, Jr. and Marjorie Louise (Hammon) Chancellor.

He grew up in the northland, heavily involved in Boy Scouts, earning his Eagle Scout, played baseball and graduated from North Kansas City High School and went on to attend the University of Missouri in Kansas City. He most loved his 1969 Mercury Cougar until he happened to meet a girl while cruising the Plaza one weekend night in 1970. Debbie Alewel would become his greatest love and they would marry on June 14, 1972 at the Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer where he and his wife would continue to faithfully attend services. Rex worked hard to care for his family and enjoyed many of the friends he made along the way, most notably at Western Auto and Ameristar Casino. He loved to play golf, watch the Royals, take the dog for a walk, spend time with his wife and grandchildren, eat bacon and enjoy a cigar.

Rex is survived by his wife of 46 years, Debbie, sons Chris (Vickie) and Sean (Rachel), grandchildren Avery, Alexis, Chase and Reagan, mother Marjorie, sister Karen (Reggie) Scruggs. He is preceded by his father Olen.

I worked with Rex at Western Auto. He was always pleasant, funny, and helpful. He never failed to stop and have a conversation when he had the time. Last year we ran into him while picking up our taxes from Bill Zornes, who also worked at W.A. His passing took me by surprise. God definitely took a good one. I wish the family much comfort and hope.

I have been off work since April and just found out about Rex. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. Rex and I would collect tokes in the morning many of times. Enjoyed working with him and listening to his stories. He will be missed at our Ameristar Family. Prayers for you and your family.

Rex was an amazing man. He always had a way to make me smile on the days needed most. He loved his family very much and talked about you all the time. (Even before we realized the connection). Sending love to you and your family. If you need anything let us know.
