Rex married Helen Moore on Dec. 22, 1951, in Baraboo. They spent almost 61 years together and were blessed with three children, Karla (Dino) Ranieri, Steven (Robin) Ziemke and Grant (Kelly) Ziemke; 10 grandchildren, Rachel Ranieri, Nick (Rachel) Ranieri, Joel Borski, Joshua Ziemke, Ashley Ranieri, Michael Ranieri, Kaitlin Ziemke, Alex Ziemke, Samantha Ziemke and Kristopher Ziemke; and five great-grandchildren, Austin Ranieri, Alexis Ranieri, Jayden Ranieri, Quentin Pollock and Skyler Ziemke.


Rex proudly served in the Navy from 1951 to 1955.  He loved hunting with his sons and grandsons, coaching and cheering his grandchildren on in various sporting events, and his dog, Angel.  Rex was preceded in death by his parents.  He will be missed greatly by his family, many friends, and other relatives.


A private family service will be held.
