Obituary for Rex Charles Sprague

Rex Charles Sprague, 87, passed away October 2, 2018 surrounded by his loving family.  He was born on October 15, 1930 in Flint, Michigan to Charles Rexford Sprague and Ida May (Fairchild) Sprague.  On June 20, 1953, Rex married the love of his life, Patsy Ann MuMaugh in Durand.

 Funeral Services will be held 2pm Friday October 5, 2018 at Nelson-House Funeral Home Owosso Chapel with Pastor Mike Hendricks officiating.  Burial will follow at Hawkins Cemetery.  The family will receive friends at the funeral home on Thursday from 4pm to 7pm.

 Rex graduated in 1948 from Flint Technical High School, followed by GM Institute.  Rex was employed by GM for over 45½ years; 31 years as a Tool and Die Maker and the remaining 14 years as a Manufacturing Engineer. 

Rex proudly served his country for over six years in the National Guard.  He was a member of the Owosso Lodge #81, Masons #161, F. & A.M.  Additionally, Rex served as Associate Guardian of Job’s Daughters, Bethel 22 (Durand.  In his later years, he was active in the First United Methodist Church in Stuart, Florida.

Rex also served as the President of Durand Athletic Boosters and also Durand Band Boosters.  He played saxophone and clarinet in the Durand Adult Band.  Rex had many activities he enjoyed after his retirement in 1993.  He had a love of making beautiful stained-glass projects; boating; an avid reader of history; and participating in the election polls.  He often gave anonymously to those less fortunate and felt blessed for what he had.  Many will remember him for his ability to listen well and only offer opinions when asked for. And, family and friends will remember him for his infectious laugh.
