Rex, you were my friend since we were kids. When we grew up, more like a brother. We spent lots of years building and enjoying our cars, going to listen to bands, and enjoying what life had to share. So grateful to have talked with ton the phone the night before you left this world, and passed on to the next. I wish You peace, happiness, and a much deserved reward for the suffering you endured for so long. Godspeed, My friend.
Rex and I went to school in 1976. We were into our Chevy cars. Alway seen him at car shows and races. He loved his Chevelle. I will miss him.
