From this obituary:

Rex was a big guy with a big heart, a big smile, a big laugh and a twinkle in his eye. Rex had a quick wit and a lot of opinions. He had the courage of his convictions. He loved and was loved by many: his parents, his sister Olive, his cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles, his friends in Nyack, in the world of swimming, at Wesleyan, and the community of musicians around the world that watched him grow from a boy to a man. And his dog Gato.

To honor Rex’s deep love of animals, contributions can be made in his name to: Dapper Dog // Hopeful Tails Rescue, 37A Route 59, Nyack, NY 10960.

Readers are encouraged to send their thoughts and prayers to Noah’s family in honor of his memory. Students who are on campus are also welcome to gather in the DFC Lounge at 1 p.m. this Friday.

Born on June 28, 1990, Noah had many interests, including film, photography, architecture, and languages. He grew up in Pasadena, California, and graduated from the Waverly School in 2009. Though he entered Wesleyan as part of the Class of 2013, Noah worked at an architecture firm in San Francisco, California during the 2011-2012 academic year, which led him to become a member of the Class of 2014 and a studio art major. He had been a part of the Wesleyan sailing team and a former resident of Film Hall and Russian House, and he had worked as a projectionist for the Film Series and as a tour guide. Many of Noah’s friends thought of him as compassionate, thoughtful, and engaging. As a Wesleying contributer and friend of Noah stated, “Words are not enough to convey how much he will be missed at Wesleyan by his friends, classmates, and professors. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this tragic time. Rest in peace, Noah. You will be missed.”
