    I’m so sorry. I ran across Mr. Kyle’s obituary on accident while looking for someone else’s. I work at Gadwalls Grill in Sherwood. He always came in and was so friendly. Breaks my heart to see this. Prayers for his family.

    I only knew Rex for a couple years, through his work at First Security Bank, but I felt like I knew him longer than that. He seemed always to be happy and affable. Rex had a real knack for making one comfortable in his presence. I just hated to hear of his “way too early” death. I will miss him and know many others will as well. Rest in peace Rex. You were a good dude.
