Rex was one of the best bosses I’ve had! He was always so caring and truly cared about his staff!

I am so deeply saddened by this, Rex was the best bosses I have ever came in contact with, I enjoyed working with him at Reliable Insurance. I will always remember all the good times we had together and will miss him calling my name 100 times a day concerning his computer problems. I will miss seeing his face every morning and him asking where his coffee is, because he always seemed to loose that, his phone, and his keys. He always had the best advice to give, and truly cared about people and that definitely showed. There is very few people like him in the world, always had the biggest smile on his face and a gentle kind word to say. Prayers for his family, friends, and also his work family, as we each loved him dearly and thought the world of him.
With love, Richie, Brittany, Grace & Nora.
