Rex A. Bowling, 65, of Mebane, NC, passed away comfortably at home, surrounded by loved ones, on July 31, 2020 after a long battle with cancer.
After growing up in Kentucky, Rex moved to Florida and became a commercial construction superintendent. Construction of all forms was his calling for many years and he moved to North Carolina to work with RN Rouse & Co out of Goldsboro – and to meet his wife. Rex later became a high school CTE instructor with Roxboro High School. He enjoyed everything about watching his grandson grow and spending time with family and friends! He also loved golfing and University of Kentucky college basketball. GO CATS!!
