REX COFFEY REMEMBERED: Community mourns with family
Comments are shared here from Adair Countians honoring the memory of Rex Coffey, whose life ended much too early. This story is linked to the initial police report on the shooting, and to a story about his life as he expanded into the new building in 2003.

Tammy, Matthew, Leslie,
Our hearts and thoughts are with you at this difficult time. May all the good memories you have of Rex help pull you through this terrible tradegy. We are here if you need anything. Take care.
Morgan, Diana, Megan and Wyatt Long
Rex Coffey was a wonderful man. Great Friend.
We will always remember the day the new Artic Cat mule came in at the Cycle Shop and he took us for a ride. Up and down the banks, over the rocks, and through the grass we went. What a funloving, happy and caring guy he was. Our deepest sympathies and Prayers go out to Tammy, Matthew, Leslie and his entire Family. He will be sadly missed but NEVER forgotten.
Love, Ed and Lynne Darnell
'I never told you how much I cherished your friendship. That was my mistake
Rex Coffey was a wonderful person.
That's all there is to it.
No matter what was going on with him, he was always the same Rex. If things were going well or not, if the weather was cold or hot, every time I met up with him he was the same person.
He was always quick with a smile, a joke and a laugh.
We were talking one day in the new building, I told him that he has quite the setup. He told me this was a life-long dream come true. I asked, "The dealership?"
He said, "No. Look, there's my wife, my son, and my daughter, a family business."
Rex and Tammy were always the first people to contribute items for WAIN's Mother's and Father's Days give-aways.
The last time I spoke with Rex was Friday at the Relay for Life. We discussed their recent trip to Mexico, some plans for a bike rider alley and my South America mission work. Rex asked me what I needed.
I told him and he told me to come by the dealership on Monday or Tuesday and he would get me what I needed.
That was Rex, always looking to help others.
Rex, I never told you how much I cherished your friendship. That was my mistake.
I will certainly miss you.
Because He Lives!
