Rex Tyrone Morrison, 61, of Royse City, Texas, passed from this life on August 13, 2022. Rex was born to Aaron Morrison, Sr., and Ruby (McQueen) Morrison, on July 7, 1961, in Tallahassee, Florida. Rex was a member at Lakepointe Church in Rockwall, Texas.

Rex made many inroads through the years. He graduated from Lincoln High School and attended Florida State University on a band scholarship. As a gifted music lover, Rex played multiple instruments, including the tuba, piano, and other horn instruments. His band Director at FSU often shared the story of Rex acting as Director of the band while he was out of the country on one occasion. He started music at an early age, taking private piano lessons as a youth. He was a movie buff. He was very good in technology.

After becoming certified as a Commercial Truck Driver, Rex traveled the country, initially from the State of Florida and later from the Dallas area.

One of his greatest milestones was marrying Gina, his one true soulmate in life.

“Isaiah’s Commission from the Lord”
And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” Isaiah 6:8

Very early in life, Rex gave his life to God. He ministered to family members, always encouraging and offering words of wisdom. A humble and faithful servant; a man of God with Christ-like qualities; a loving and committed husband; a proud uncle of four and great uncle of two; a tireless friend; an honest and giving advisor! Rex moved along life’s journey, offering his all to both friends and strangers.
