Rex Jr resided in Calgary at the time of his sudden passing. He tried his best in life to improve himself and was humble about that part of his life. He never hesitated to help others especially those he cared about. He enjoyed life to the fullest. The many good friends he easily made will absolutely miss his humor and his never ending big smile, friends would call him sexy Rexy. He could always cheer you up with his great sense of humor because he related to those who had the privilege to know him. Rex Jr. loved being around his friends and relatives and enjoyed listening to his gangster rap, reggae and heavy metal music. He participated in playing hockey and karate when he was young and was taught some of the Siksika traditional ways of life through his Grandpa Fraser. He also enjoyed swimming, camping, fishing, and going to the movies. His favorite cartoon growing up was Dragon ball Z and liked Anime. He attended Bow Valley College and was class president. He enjoyed math and was planning on returning to continue his education. Rex will always be remembered for his outgoing friendly demeanor, his constant smile which he carried all his life and for the way he made people around him laugh all the time. The family would sincerely like to thank the Alpha House Society and their beautiful staff. "THANK YOU" from the bottom of our hearts. And not to forget the Staff at Clayton House where he resided.
