August 18, 1932 ~ December 14, 2010
Rexford Victor King was born on August 18, 1932 and passed away on December 14, 2010 in Abbotsford, BC. Rex and wife Emma raised three children, Bruce, Norman and Darlene. Rex worked for BC Tel for 38 years and retired in 1989. Rex was an auxiliary firefighter for the Abbotsford Fire Department for seventeen years. Throughout his time at BC Tel and the Abbotsford Fire Department, he gained many long lasting friendships. Rex enjoyed hobbies such as wood-working, playing crib, making his own beer, spending time with family and friends. Rex was known for his sense of humour, his rough and tough exterior and his true caring heart. He had kind blue eyes and a wonderful smile. He will be greatly missed by many. A day of remembrance will be held on Friday, January 14th, 2011 at the Rancho at 35110 Delair Road, Abbotsford, BC. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Douglas Jacob Rexford Gosling Memoral Award. Rex’s family would like to thank friends and family for their support and kindness as well at the staff of Abbotsford Regional Hospital.
Rest in Peace Dad.
