Rex was employed at Chrysler for 30 years while serving as a minister for 50 years in South Holland, Ill., at Bible Fellowship Church and then Grace Fellowship Church in Logansport. He loved to preach the word rightly divided and grace for all.

Rex loved to travel and camp. He took the “trip of a lifetime” when he traveled with his wife to Alaska. Rex had a passion for photography, woodworking, flea marketing and collecting.

Grant, Kokomo; and nine grandchildren, whom Rex dearly loved, Nicholas, Samantha, Owen, Aidan, Jessalyn, Emily, Michael, Johnathan and Sydney.

He was preceded in death by one brother, Ken Grant, who died this past January.
