The last 10 years of his career he worked decommissioning the old nuclear power plant at the Humboldt Bay Power Plant.

Through the years Rey enjoyed sports, spending time with family, watching movies, and playing music. He played baseball throughout school and was a member of the recreation team for Pacific Lumber Company as an adult. Rey was also a talented drummer who played in a number of bands over the course of his adulthood, including one with his daughter Jennifer. He performed regularly with different groups at music venues all over Humboldt County. He also was proud of a long-term project building a country dream home with perfection which he was able to nearly complete and leave behind for his family upon passing.
