We lost Rex Oct. 16, 2006, when he died peacefully in his sleep at his home, in Jackson, Miss.
Rex grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, and graduated from Shaker Heights High School, where he wrestled, played baseball and football, and served as a class officer. At Princeton he majored in history, served as a football manager, and belonged to Cap and Gown, which he served as Interclub Athletic Association director.
After Princeton, Rex received a law degree from the University of Michigan Law School in 1969. He practiced law in Washington, D.C., and Tokyo as a specialist in securities law. Following that, for the last 26 years of his life, Rex lived and practiced law in Jackson, concentrating primarily in appellate law.
Rex was an avid outdoorsman and especially loved golf and fishing. He had a deep intellectual curiosity and a dry wit.
We will miss Rex. We extend our sympathy to his brother and sister-in-law, Judge and Mrs. Charles E. Brown Jr., and to the Brown family.
