In Loving memory of Rex Allan Rogers Born August 1st 1957 in Miami, Oklahoma as the
second son of Sam and Roberta (Shackelford) Rogers. Date of passing, January 4th 2024 at
the age of 66 years old at his home in Castle Rock, Washington surrounded by loved ones.
Rex was a beloved son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and doggy dad. He
married Kathi Wallace on June 18th 1977 in Blaine Washington. Rex's love for hunting and
fishing almost exceeded his love for the Oklahoma Sooners, but nothing came close to the love
he had for his family and fur babies. He will be remembered with great love by his family
and all who knew him from the ladies at the office, where his wife Kathi worked, to the customers
at the Tea Cup in Centralia, Washington. Rex's faith in God kept him strong through his health
struggles and assures us he is in heavenwith his parents.
He attended Blaine High School in Blaine, Washington and Lower Columbia College where he
graduated and received his Associates Degree in computer engineering. In 1995 he earned his
electrician's license, working his way up to Journeyman Inside Wireman there after he served
for 25 years out of Local #970 Union Hall in Longview, Washington.
Rex is survived by his wife Kathi; a daughter Katherine (Nick); a son Kristopher (Hahli);
Grandchildren, Sam, Alex, Estyn and Peyton; God children Zachary and Christian Joy; Siblings,
Leonard and Rita; Extended family he loved and admired Uncle Danny Rex and Aunt Helen,
