Olivier's 'Wuthering Heights' touched my soul long, long ago. Though it saddens me to read of the young Heathcliff's passing, I like to believe Rex knew he had gained a form of immortality due to this classic film, truly "a film for the ages". ...Godspeed, Rex!

I just watched Wutherings Heights for the millionth time and wondered about the wonderful actor who had played the young Heathcliff. After searching online, I noticed he had recently passed. I hope his long life was full of love. May he Rest In Peace.

Rex and Donna would come into Joe's quite often. They were two peas in a pod. When Donna passed he would come in once a week i believe. I looked forward to seeing Rex and would make sure to chat with him everytime he came to eat if i was working that day. He always talked about his Donna. He even signed a picture and gave it to me of him in his younger days when he acted in a movie. He will be missed dearly. RIP rex ❤

Just now found out about Rex's death. He and Donna were kind, warmhearted people. Donna was my stepfather's sister and only sibling.

Memories of them are some of the warmest and most meaningful of my life."l
