From: Lindsay and Margie Prince
Relation: Lindsay is a cousin of Rex. They grew up together in Bishop's Falls,NL

Helen and family, we were so saddened to hear of Rex’s passing. We have many fond memories of Rex from our youth. Lindsay remembers well their nights as kids playing outside until long after dark under the light pole in front of Uncle Harve’s house and spending warm summer nights sleeping out on the Watton’s veranda. I recall him as a handsome teenager trying to impress the girls in nearby Grand Falls! We had many happy times recalling them whenever we met. He was a kind gentle soul and had a very firm faith that served him well throughout his life. May he rest in peace. Our thoughts are with you as you celebrate his life today. God Bless.
