Axelrod’s agent confirmed Axelrod had died Saturday in Los Angeles, California. He was 70 years old.
“Robert enjoyed meeting his fans and inspiring them to follow their passions,” his agent said in the Twitter statement. “His beautiful and kindred soul will never be forgotten and we take comfort in knowing his memory will live on in all those he inspired, met and knew.”
