Rex E. Faux

Deputy Sheriff Rex Faux was killed in a vehicle crash as he and another deputy returned to Akron after responding to a robbery in Loyal Oak.

They were driving on the Akron-Wadsworth Road when the patrol car's steering column failed, causing the car to leave the roadway and crash into a concrete culvert at Wolf Creek. The deputy riding with him was able to free himself from the wreckage and wave down a passing motorist. Both deputies were taken to St. Thomas Hospital where Deputy Faux was pronounced dead.
