Happy 90th Birthday to our Seafood Star Rex!

Happy 90th Birthday to our Seafood Star Rex!
Rex and his twin sister Fay grew up in Bolivar, PA the children of Alice Robinson (daughter of a Civil War soldier) and John Clyde McHail (Veteran of World War I). 
 Rex was active in Boy Scouts while growing up, attaining the rank of Eagle.  He enlisted with the Navy during WW2 at the age of 18, serving as Quartermaster aboard the USS Breeman, DE 104.  He earned his BS in Forestry from Penn State after the war. 
 He then accepted a position in Colorado with the U.S. Forestry Service for a time. 

Rex and Shirley Ann Frye were married in 1952 and moved to Washington DC to start their family, where Rex was employed with the Navy Dept before moving into the private sector as a Photogrammetrist with
 Bausch & Lomb.  
After retirement, Rex refined his love of woodcarving and his appreciation for waterfowl in particular,  producing many pieces of hand carved artwork and sharing his talents with  others in both formal and informal teaching venues.  
Rex and Shirley are especially admired by their four grown children and nine grandchildren. 

 For a number of years, Rex and Shirley have made their home in Rochester, NY while wintering with friends and enjoying the excellent seafood of sunny Cape Canaveral, Florida.
This beautiful writing was submitted by Rex Jr.  Have a great birthday!
