Rex was born on March 14th, 1930 in Valsetz to Lewis “Warner” and Elizabeth “Bessie” Hampton as the third of eight children. He spent a significant portion of his childhood living along the Oregon Coast and Cougar Mountain. He later moved to Lyons, where he married and raised three children and then again moved to Aumsville, where he re-married twice and raised three more children. As a man who was very dedicated to his family, he devoted his life to working hard in order to provide his loved ones with a good life.

He began working from a young age, spent many years of his life as an electrical worker with IBEW, operated a Christmas three farm, and was caretaker for his elderly mother and father. In his spare time, he enjoyed golfing, cars, and traveling. He had many fond memories competing in golfing tournaments, working on cars, and traveling around the United States, Ecuador, and the Philippines.

Rex is survived by four sons, Louis and his wife Patty, Clifford, Kent and his wife Rosie, and Kirk; two daughters, Kathy and her husband John, and Eva and her husband Matthew; thirteen grandchildren, Brandy, Michelle, Clifford, Rex, Tessie, Stacie, Crystal, Justin, Brian, Karissa, Amelia, Connor, and Naomi; several beloved great-grandchildren; five siblings, Herbert, Hugh, Jeanie, Judith, and Coral; and two ex-wives Carmen and Jovelyn.
