Rex Albert Larsen, 74, of Oshkosh, WI died unexpectedly on Tuesday, October 17, 2023, from injuries sustained in a fall at his home. His departure was completely unexpected and the family is shocked and deeply saddened.

Rex was born on September 4, 1949, in Oshkosh to Kenneth and Winnie Larsen. He attended Omro High School and married Karen (Weidner) and moved to Oshkosh where they had two children, Dennis and Dana. Since 1986 Rex and Daryl Dietz have been partners and were married in 2014.

Rex worked at Mercury Marine for over 20 years before leaving to work at The Oshkosh Pool & Spa Center with his son.

Rex was very social and loved spending time with friends and relatives playing golf, sheepshead, and of course cribbage. Anyone that knew Rex, knew that he was loving and caring and did anything for his grandchildren. His family and friends will miss him more than words can say.

A visitation for family and friends will be on Friday, October 27, 2023, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. at First Congregational Church 137 Algoma Blvd. Oshkosh. A funeral service will be held on Friday at 3:30 p.m. at the church with Pastor Nancy Taylor officiating. A reception will follow.

We were very sorry to learn that Rex had passed away. He and Daryl have been treasured friends for many years. We will miss his funny sense of humor, his kindness, his love for animals, his devotion to Marilyn Monroe, his charm, intelligence, and his wonderful laugh. He was always just a kind and friendly person that we loved calling a friend. His family, Daryl, and all his friends are going to miss him a lot. We are going to miss all his wonderful stories about his family. He truly loved his family and Daryl.37 Rex may be gone, but we won't forget him. We send our condolences to Daryl, to Rex's family, and to Daryl's family, at this most difficult time. David Ross Danny
