Larry Axsom

I rec'd an email from Ruth Axsom today that her husband Larry passed
away yesterday morning. He had liver cancer and it had spread to other
areas of his body. He gave a good fight but did not win.
Larry had gathered Axsom information for years, he sent out inquiry letters to find Axsom's, he started the Axsom Family Newsletter, helped start the Axsom Association of America, got national reunions going, & wrote at least 2 Axsom books that I know of. Larry brought a lot of people together.

That's my dad. Glad mom/Ruth got in contact w/you about him.

I'm in process of getting an editable Axsom database on line to augment what's at the existing axsom.org site. The working version is here.
