    Wow. I worked with Rex in the 1970s at J C Penneys Auto center. I was just out of highschool and He was the old man. 50 yrs old I would guess. He was very helpful to anybody and everybody. He tried to be the tough OLD Man, But He was all mush inside. Way too nice. He worked harder and more then any of us young guys. I learned a lot from him and he helped shape my work ethic. I was able to help new young people into the Business. He is just Great In my Memories. Now I’m retired. Thanks REX.

    I just wanted to send my deepest sympathies to the whole family of Rex. He and my Dad, Leroy Rothermund, were great friends, and I have the best memories of how much fun my Dad and Mom, Joan, had with Rex and Jacque. He was so nice and fun to be around, and I remember love watching him dance! He was a Great guy who I have a special place in my heart for because he was the dear friend my Dad was on his way to spend lunch with on the day he passed away. He was a Great man who my Dad had the privilege of having as a friend! Again my deepest sympathies to you all. Gina (Rothermund) Bohac.
