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.
