July 18, 1932 - January 30, 2018

Rex Robert Tebow of Blackwell, Oklahoma, quietly slipped from this earthly life on Tuesday evening, January 30, 2018, at the age of 85 years.

Rex Robert Tebow was born on July 18, 1932, in Lamont, Oklahoma, to Karl Orr and Edith Rae (Hardwick) Tebow. The youngest of four children, he grew up helping his parents on the family farm and playing every sport Lamont offered a young man. Rex served as president of his graduating class of 1950. He entered the United States Navy in September of 1951, serving in both Korea and China, and was honorably discharged in September of 1955. Following his discharge, he returned to Lamont to help his family and began working for the local Clyde Co-op. On November 17, 1962, he married Chleora Kay Keener and bravely took on the responsibility of dad to her children, Kim, Mike and Lisa. In the summer of 1963, Rex transferred to the Clyde Co-op in Medford, where he moved his expanding family. A son, Tracy, was born that Christmas, and the youngest, Devry, was born in 1965. Through those early years, Rex worked at Clyde Co-op and after hours in the summer, worked the fields all over Grant County. In 1974 the family moved to Blackwell to make their home and Rex became station manager at Co-op, until his retirement. Rex was a life-long bowler and participated on league teams in Tonkawa and Blackwell. He was an avid Oklahoma Sooner football fan, but was a real sport for wearing the occasional Oklahoma State Cowboys shirt to please certain children and grandchildren. He enjoyed grilling burgers and visiting with family and friends. A most kind and wonderful person, he will be greatly missed, especially by his large and loving family.

He is survived by two daughters, Kim Coons and husband Dale of Ponca City, and Lisa Rains of Blackwell; two sons, Tracy Tebow and wife Glenis of Blackwell, and Devry Tebow and wife Edie of Abilene, Texas; a brother, Dwaine Tebow and wife Donna Jean of Lamont; nineteen grandchildren; thirty-nine great grandchildren; three great great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his wife; his parents; a son, Mike Tebow; a brother, Lloyd Tebow; a sister, Lois Parks; and a granddaughter, Michelle.

Services are scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Saturday, February 3rd in the First United Methodist Church in Blackwell with Rev. Cap McIlnay officiating. Burial will follow in the Blackwell Cemetery with military honors performed by former Navy personnel, Trey Thompson and Cap McIlnay.

Casketbearers will be Eric Rains, Kyle Rains, Jake Rains, Joe Rains, Ted Rains and Brandon Thompson.

In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association in c/o Roberts and Son Funeral Home, 120 W. Padon, Blackwell, Oklahoma 74631.
