Rex was a master of all trades. He could build and repair anything and was often found helping neighbors and friends with projects. He worked as a teacher, home builder and worked 17 years at the University of Utah in Campus Planning. He loved to fish and hunt and spent many weekends on his boat. He never complained and walked through life with grace and a smile. He was an example of courage, unconditional love, strength and devotion.

Rex is survived by his wife of 48 years, Linda; sister, Lorraine Bosklopper; daughter, Sherrie Barbee (Matt); sons; Brooks (Lisa Marie), Bryan (Kristin), Brandon (Melissa); grandchildren: Zachary, Morgan, Jaiden, Jonathan, Madeleine, Jordan, Lincoln, Ashlin, Isabella, Samantha and Eli.
