He lived at home and various other places, the longest at Onawa, Iowa, while being served at Crossroads of Western Iowa. Most recently he resided at the Christian Opportunity Center in Pella, Iowa. Rex attended church at the First Christian Church in Onawa. Along with finding long-lasting friendships at Crossroads, Rex loved to dance, especially to the rock and roll music of the 70's. He also enjoyed rodeos, parades, and watching golf on TV. Desserts were his favorite and first part of the meal, the whipped cream disappearing the fastest. In 2012, Rex and his bowling team won a gold medal at the Special Olympics at Des Moines, Iowa. Rex's survivors include two sisters, Mary Mohrhauser of Waukee, Iowa and Bonnie Sohm of Lead, South Dakota; one brother and his wife, Mike and Carol Mohrhauser of Ida Grove, Iowa; and numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives. He was preceded in death by his parents; one brother, Eldon (Pidge) Webb; one sister, Alberta (Bert) Leisinger; and a brother-in-law, Richard Sohm.
