It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Rex Maughan. We know this news will come as a shock to many and we are mindful of that, and our love goes out to each of you across the miles.
Rex will be remembered as a husband to Ruth, a father to Todd, Soni and Gregg. A grandfather to 12, a great grandfather to 16, an entrepreneurial giant and friend to millions. He was content in any setting; in the presence of royalty, on a hillside on one of his ranches or simply wandering down a lane in his beloved Samoa.
Born into a farming family in Soda Springs, Idaho, he grew from those humble beginning to build an empire that has touched millions. Yet, he never lost his love for community and the people around him. He remembered names, hugged everyone and always had time to listen. His legacy will be one of hope and love that has spread to every corner of the World.
Many of you may wonder what you can do to help and we appreciate that. For now, we ask that you hug loved ones, be first to say sorry and look for opportunities to serve those around you. For those of you in Forever, we know that Rex would be telling you to talk to more people and to never forget that the Power of Forever is the Power of Love.
We understand that many we will want to participate in Rex’s farewell services. However, due to COVID restrictions it is anticipated that this will be an intimate family funeral and a global digital Celebration of Life. More details will be sent out in the coming days.
We love you all,
The Maughan Family
