    My Dear Friend Rex,
    I heard this horrible horrific news on Tuesday. My heart is broken into a million pieces. You are my best boy that I looked forward to seeing every time I went to Dallas. I remember the first business trip I took to Dallas from Denver staying at the Hotel ZAZA and wondered my way to Mckinney Ave looking for a spot to have a frosty cold beverage as I saw the first cool looking place called Idle Rich. I walked into the bar and saw this guy slanging drinks like nobody’s business. He was mingling with the patrons and talking trash to the locals. I knew this guy was awesome. I grabbed a seat a the bar he instantly started to chat me up I told him I was in the exotic car business and he was intrigued with my line of work. We talked throughout the night I felt like I knew him for YEARS!! I helped him close down the place and the rest is history. I’ve been great friends with him for 7 years now and was always looking forward to taking my trips to Dallas to hang out with him which was frequent. Always running around town throwing parties at the hotel with a bunch of randoms and trashing the hotel rooms trip after trip like we were Motley Crew. We have had some amazing times and I have some memories that will last a lifetime. Life is so fragile that sometimes we take for granted. Remember to hug and kiss your love ones everyday all day. I want to say thank you for all the wonderful times we had shared. You are my brother from another mother for sure!! I know you are up there hanging with the main man drinking a cold one trying to convince him to give you the keys to run the show just for 1 day!!! Always turning a bad idea into a good one! THAT’S WHY I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!! My heart goes out to your family and friends as we lost a good one. This planet will not be the same without you my friend. Thought and prayer are with you and your loved ones. You have planted a seed in everyone’s heart that you have crossed paths with. I LOVE YOU MY BROTHER WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN! XOXOXO’S
    May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
    God Bless you Rex Adam Aaron!
    Your Best Boy from Denver,
    David Milton Price

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. So sorry for your loss. Rex was an amazing guy. He will be missed terribly.

  • By Charles R. Frassoni on

    Rex, I am so very sorry; I think about you a lot. I am at a loss for words, that won’t help the pain. With my Eric waiting to be deployed, I am not in a good place; I can not fathom your grief. You are a true Friend, and like a Brother; I love you. Frassoni

    Rex-nothing is ever certain and for some moments in life there are no words. While it’s still hard for me to realize the fact that Adam is gone from our lives, special moments will live on with you and your family. When someone we love dies, we get so busy mourning what died, we ignore what didn’t.
    It is the fate of every human being to be a unique individual, to find his own path, to live his own life. Adam had done that in the short time he was here.
    All my love to you and your family.

    I grew up with Adam and then was lucky enough to spend time with Rex when he returned to Dallas years later. We have lost a vibrant storyteller, an unwavering uplifter, and a genuine friend. He impacted everyone he met and my heart goes out to his family, friends, and anyone who missed their chance to meet a one in million human being.

    Rex and family
    so sorry for your loss

  • By Michael Tellier on

    The first time we spoke was in the 9th grade. I was wearing my ‘Fry OJ’ t-shirt and you approached me asking if I would sell it because you thought it was the funniest shirt you had seen. That started a 25 year friendship. The irony of the story was you turned out to be funniest guy I’ll ever meet. A razor sharp wit that was unparalleled backed by a heart of gold. You were one of my closest friends and I always thought of you as a brother. You are irreplaceable and will be missed by many. Love you brother and Rest In Peace.

    -Michael

    Dear Rex, Mary & Amanda,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Adam was a great person, whom I have known for quite a while. He was always a pleasure to be around. This is probably the most difficult thing you will ever go through in a lifetime. He was as handsome as he was nice. He always had a smile and I enjoyed any moment I was in his presence. He will be truly missed.
    I pray for your family that God gives you the strength to go on each day without this wonderful young man.
    You’ll be in my thoughts and prayers.All my love. Gloria
