Rex Edward Whitfield, age 60, of Hodgenville, passed away Friday, November 6, 2020, at his residence.
A Jack-of-all-trades, his former jobs included being a jet fueler at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, NV; a cabinet maker and an equipment rental manager in Grayson Co., until being disabled by a stroke in the early 2000’s. Rex had a big heart and loved to fish and loved people.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Ronald Lee and Betty Jean Stevenson Whitfield of Breckinridge Co. and a brother, Barry Whitfield of Las Vegas, NV.
Rex is survived by his three children, Ricky L. Whitfield of FL; Rachel Whitfield of OR and Stefan Whitfield of AZ; a sister, Melanie (Wayne) Creekmore of Hodgenville; three grandchildren, Ayla, C.J. and Charlie; two aunts, Wanda Stevenson of Westview and Jackie Stevenson of Roff; an uncle, Donald E. Jarboe of McDaniels and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
In keeping with his wishes, he was cremated and the family will conduct a private scattering ceremony at Cave Springs Methodist Church Cemetery in Roff at a later date.
