Rex Boughton was Promoted to Glory on Wednesday 3rd April 2019. A faithful servant of God who will be missed by many.
The Boughton family has written the tribute below:
The funeral service and celebration of his life will take place at Chatham Salvation Army, Church Street, Chatham, ME4 4BT on 30th April 2019 at 13:30, followed by a committal service at Medway Crematorium at 15:00 for family members and close friends.
As a family we thank God for his faithful service as a soldier of Jesus Christ. His motto in life was always ‘get involved’ and he certainly did this, as he used his gifts to renovate and undertake countless refurbishment tasks at both his home Corps of Canterbury Temple and in later years at Chatham Citadel. The book of James encourages us to demonstrate our faith through actions/works and Rex epitomised this.
We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us, but grateful that he is now at peace, has received full healing, and has received his ‘well done’ from his Saviour.
Praise God for a great example of a man – husband, father, grandfather – who lived a Christian life in every aspect, including family, marriage, work, church and beyond.
It has been our privilege to come under his influence.
Well done thou good and faithful servant!
