His love of the outdoors was what brought him to Pagosa Springs, where he has lived for the past 27 years. He was an avid cross-country skier, backpacker, and road and mountain biker. He was a longtime volunteer at the animal humane society, Upper San Juan Search and Rescue and the U.S. Forest Service. He was also a founder and volunteer of the Chama Nordic Club.
Rex is survived by his wife, Ann; his four children: Tracy, Conrad, Lynne and Philip, and their spouses; and seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his grandson, Bradley.
A celebration of Rex’s life will be held at the Community Center on Saturday, Jan. 14, at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please contribute to the Pagosa Springs Humane Society or your local animal humane society.
