Information has just started to go around, but we've found out that Robert Axelrod has passed.
To Digimon fans, Axelrod would be best known as Armadillomon (and his evolutions Ankylomon and Shakkoumon) in the dub of Adventure 02 and Wizardmon in Adventure, among other characters.
He was probably best known to most overall as Lord Zedd from Power Rangers, along with monster creator Finster and a number of other monsters.
Axelrod hadn't been well for an extended period of time (recovering from a major surgery that had complications), and the post from Sheryl Mandel (his publicist) suggests it was just the extended period of not being well...
My closest friend and client dear Robert Axelrod has passed away. His poor body could not fight anymore....
While he was still healthy he used to often go to conventions sharing many stories with anyone who showed up to his panels. He would often have everyone who showed up come to the front rows and fill up the seats there and just use his time to tell stories of his years on Digimon, Power Rangers, and other shows fans wanted to hear about.
Thanks to Sheryl Mandel and Barbara Goodson for the news and Sam Almighty for the heads up.
