I grew up on Power Rangers and Digimon so this is pretty painful losing one of the most iconic voices in my childhood.

Rest in peace.

Two Digimon VAs in one month and we lost the English VA for Metalgreymon earlier this year too. Armadillomon and Wizardmon are especially two of my favorite Digimon. Robert Axlerod was also an important part of my childhood playing both Lord Zedd and Finster in Power Rangers. RIP Robert Axelrod and my thoughts are with his loved ones.

He was a truly lovely man. I know he had been in a lot of pain for quite some time. I’m happy his suffering is over and wish the best for his family.

Yeah, anyone whose seen recent pictures of him could tell it was going to happen before long. Still unfortunate it had to end this way rather than recovery.

Awww jeez. Poor him and Michael Lindsey. I grew up on Digimon so I'm sure this is a huge blow to fellow Digimon fans. May they both rest in peace. Crying or Very sad

I listened to him speak at a convention once, and he seemed like a pretty cool guy. RIP, Mr. Axelrod--70 is too young to pass away. At this difficult time, I hope his family is comforted to know that so many fans deeply appreciated his work.

I'll always remember him as one of the best Power Rangers villains to exist: Lord Zedd. May he rest in peace. Crying or Very sad

I'll miss that voice, especially for Lord Zedd. Eternal life grant unto him, and may perpetual light shine upon him.

Let's hope that rabid, misogynistic piece of shit disappeared from the public eye and doesn't know about it at all.
