Rex Lee Friend, age 65 of rural La Cygne, Kansas, passed away at Olathe Medical Center on Monday, October 17, 2022. Rex was born the son of Troy Leonard and Betty Pearl (Reed) Friend on August 11, 1957, at Colorado Springs, Colorado. Rex was a very patriotic man, serving his country for six years in the United Stated Army and also in the United States Marine Corps reserves.
He was very mechanically inclined. He would rebuild lawn mowers and was also known to take an older truck or car and fix it and take off driving it across the country. He loved the music of Willie Nelson and was also an avid outdoorsman and fisherman, going off grid as much as possible. Over the years he was a landscaper and tree trimmer. He was also known to help out his veteran buddies with work, to allow them to make some extra money.
Rex was preceded in death by his parents; one brother, Carl Roy Friend; and one sister, Linda Mae Smith. He is survived by his loving sister, Samantha Wood.
