Rex L. Williams

August 5, 1935 — February 26, 2023

Kansas City

Rex L. Williams, 87, passed away February 26, 2023.  Rex was a man of many colors. One of which he never met a stranger. Rex has spent a lot of time in Florida with his nephew Bob and Bob's wife Mary.  Bob was like a son to Rex and Rex was like a father to Bob.  Rex met Frankie (Franita) about 10 years ago. One day Rex and Franita were going to lunch and they called Renita, Franita’s sister and Renita asked what are you doing Rex said we are going to lunch Renita said not without me you’re not Rex told her to come on, that was like 4 years ago and from that day forward Rex adopted both of the girls as his granddaughters, Rex is leaving a huge impact on the girls, he has taught them so much. Rex got sick in November of 2022 and was faced with being put in a nursing home because he lived alone so at that point Renita and Franita decided to start taking care of Rex so one would stay with Rex for one or two days and then the other one would come and stay while the other would take a break and then in the middle of February of 2023, Rex was declining so rapidly that both girls have been with Rex 24/7 non-stop. Rex went from going to lunch with his favorite waitresses two or three times a week to not going at all in a matter of days. Rex loved to play cards and dominos, Rex taught Renitas 6 year old grandson and Kristina to play dominos with him, Rex also loved to shoot pool he enjoyed it with the upmost when KC, Kristina, Dale and Frankie would go downstairs and he would clear the table and laugh the whole time doing it, Rex has worked most of his life he worked in the mail room for the KC terminal Railroad and from there he became a teamster and started driving for Yellow Freight as a truck driver, Rex loved going to lunch he had four different places that he enjoyed the most, The favorite places he loved visiting “Toni” Dixion’s chili Independence MO, “Chelsie” Olive Garden Lee summit, “Janet” Corner Café Liberty, MO, “Debbie” Olive Garden 40 Hwy,  The ladies loved him and he loved the ladies very much. Rex has met several good people and enjoyed spending time with them here’s to name just a few, John Berry, KC Class, Darla Class, Kristina Neilon, Clay Ward, Tammy Sublett and David Clark who was a life time friend. Rex is preceded in death by mother “Rose”, father “Roy”. “Betty” wife and mother of their two children “Cindy” and “Chris Williams”, Late wife “Louise Williams”, Daughter “Cindy Williams” and brothers “William (Bill)”, “Dennis (Denny)”, “Duane” and “Donald (Donny)”.

Rex had lots of nieces and nephews and loved them all. Special Thanks to Crossroad Hospice and the nurses who showed great support to Rex,Renita and Franita at such times of need.
