Paul E Axsom

May 2, 1960December 19, 2020

Paul Edward Axsom II (May 2nd, 1960 - December 19th, 2020) Our brother Paul was preceded in death by his parents Paul Axsom I and Deane Axsom. Paul shared his father’s name, so he went by ‘Eddie’ while attending State Street School, Central, and Columbus East High School. After high school Paul served in the military achieving the rank of Sergeant in the United States Air Force, then continued his service in the Indiana National Guard with the Air traffic Control, while finishing his degree in Electronics. Each organization recognized his commitment with honors. More recently Paul completed Vet to Vet Peer Facilitation Training, pursued a ham radio license, belonged to the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), and hoped to volunteer for his community through R.A.C.E.S. (KC9TXR signing off). Paul often mountain-biked on rugged trails through the hills of Brown County. He was an avid reader enjoying history and fitness books in his spare time. Paul’s stalwartness proved uncompromising during the 2020 lockdown. Wanting to remain independent he kept his medical condition a secret from most of his family and friends. His neighbors knew and ministered to him in simple acts of service, mowing his lawn, washing his clothes, and speaking to him about Jesus. Paul told his family only a few days before his passing when the pain became too much. His childhood friend rushed to be by his bedside at ‘Our Hospice’ where he died within days. Paul is survived by three sisters-- Sherri Weidman, Deborah Axsom, and Becki Biberdorf, who are scattered across the country. Unable to be with their brother they deeply appreciate answers to prayer through a local community of angels that showed up in unexpected ways during a world-wide pandemic and by the grace of God to love their brother Paul.

"'And whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward. '" Matthew 10:42
