E-News                       ***Rex Sagle***


It is with great sadness that I forward this information to our membership.  I just learned that ALERT long time member and staunch EVO training supporter Rex Sagle has gone home to his eternal Driving Track.

After a few months of medical issues Rex passed on February 15, 2018.  Please keep Rex's family in your thoughts and prayers.  Rex's passing, even though expected near the end, was very traumatic and truly unexpected following his heart bypass surgery last fall.  

Rex was very active in supporting EVO training, especially with CHP.  Many are not aware that a number of training videos developed by CHP in the 70's and 80's included Rex as the vehicle driver.  In talking with his family I think our Heavenly Father needed to get some drivers square away in heaven and took Rex to handle that situation...LOL.  We will surely miss Rex at this year's conference in Portland.
