    Please accept our sincere condolences, we are so sorry for your loss. I worked at Raybestos with Rex and John and know Missy too and have nothing but fond memories. Rex was kind, funny and a bit of a prankster. His loved his family dearly and they came first and foremost in his life. I pray for strength and comfort for each of you as you mourn his passing. Rest in Peace Rex and soar with the angels.

    Onie and Missy. I don’t have to tell you how fond I have been of your family over many years. My prayers are with you through this time. Rex was a good guy. He liked to give me a rough time but all in fun. He will be missed I know. “Ya Gotta Love the Hat”!! Love to all.

    Onie – I was saddened to see Rex’ obituary. I haven’t seen you in many years but remember working with you at RR Donnelley in the keypunch room. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    To all of the Huntley family we were very sad to hear of the passing of Rex. Your family have always been very special to us and we feel the sadness you are going through. God will take that pain and turn it into warm happy memories for all of you to fall back on when needed. There are so many times that memories of Marilyn come back to me. They will both always be missed. Love from Al and Linda
