Rex Batchelor passed away peacefully into the arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Wednesday, March 16, 2022. Rex entered this life March 23, 1936, in Hughes, Ark., one of nine children, into a family filled with love and joy. After excelling as a star football and basketball player at Hughes High School, he attended Memphis State University.
He and his wife moved to Delaware in 1976, where Rex channeled his passion for life into the community of Milford: contributing to the music ministry of Reformation Lutheran Church, working with the Friends of the Milford Public Library, and performing in many plays at Second Street Players. This same passion was reflected in the beautiful gardens he cultivated at the homes he and his wife shared. While he had many outside interests, his family remained his top love and the focus of his life.
His celebration of life will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, April 30, at Reformation Lutheran Church, 613 Lakeview Ave., Milford.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Milford Public Library or Reformation Lutheran Church.
