Martin Axelrod Obituary

Martin Jay Axelrod died on January 28, 2024, at home in the arms of his wife, Natalie. They were married on June 19, 1982, and resided in Enola, Pennsylvania.

He honored his Jewish faith and his family.

Besides his wife, he is survived by his siblings Ray Axelrod of Willimantic; Shirli Axelrod (brother-in-law Mike Seamans) of Seattle, WA; Ed Axelrod of Knoxville, TN, and niece Abby Axelrod of Nashville, TN.
