Vernon Rex Clinton, beloved husband and father, passed away on January 28, 2020 at home with family at his side. Born on June 7, 1944 to Vernon Robert and Ruth B. (Major) Clinton of Antwerp, Ohio, Rex was a 1962 graduate of Antwerp High School and served with the Air National Guard from 1965 to 1972. On December 30, 1966 he married his loving wife, Bonnie Sue (Beck) Clinton, who survives. Employed with NCR and The Arnold Corporation in sales and business forms design, Rex eventually began his own company, Form Techniques, in 1988 continuing until 2019. Formerly residing in Granger/South Bend, IN and Naperville, IL, he and Bonnie moved to their home on Hamilton Lake, in Hamilton, Indiana in 1995. There, in the town where they first met, they enjoyed being close to family and old friends, making many new friends, and hosting many a gathering and reunion over the years. Rex enjoyed traveling, genealogy, spending the winter months in sunny Florida, and a good martini. But most importantly being with Bonnie, his children and grandchildren.
