Alan Richard Traxler

Born: 06/13/1964 Passed:

Alan Richard Traxler, age 55, of Akron passed away peacefully with family by his side on August 16, 2019 of acute renal failure following a long illness. Alan graduated from Kenmore High School, class of 1982. Alan worked in various general labor jobs over the years, as well as security at Rolling Acres until it closed. Alan enjoyed simple pleasures such as the water and beach especially while living in Fort Meyers and later Portage Lakes, and also vacationing with friends and family. He was a lifelong bachelor but enjoyed flirting with and charming the ladies. Alan never met a stranger and loved to shoot the breeze. Alan remained an eternal optimist throughout his life.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Margaret and brother, Eric during 2019. They are now together again in eternal rest.

Alan is survived by his father, Richard of Fairlawn; two sisters, Autumn Kahwaji (Walid) of Fairlawn and Ann Van Wagoner (David) of Davidsonville, MD; nephews, Blake, David and Richard as well as many cousins and extended family.

Alan and the family truly appreciated the many caring individuals and medical professionals that encouraged and helped him in many ways over the years including most recently the Summa Health Hospice team.

Cremation has taken place and no public services are planned. The family requests privacy at this time.

    I am so glad I have my last memory of Alan sitting on the couch across from me with Richie in his recliner, just the three of us. He pulled up on his motorcycle happy as could be and stayed for nearly an hour. We all had such a good visit just like old times. We will always remember him as filled with joy because he always was when he met up with old friends. Time before the last, saw him at the Acme, happy to see Mrs. C as always and always ready to talk. Love you, Alan.

    Thoughts and prayers are with the family. I have a lot a fond memories of hanging out at the Traxler house as a child. Riding bikes up and down the driveway, through the blueberry patch and in the woods. Your basement was always filled with toys and interesting things to do. I wish we could all go back to the carefree days of the late 1960s and early 1970s. I am so sorry for the loss of Alan, Eric and Aunt Margaret. I hope you find comfort in your memories.

    I’ve known Al from the time I was just a little kid riding my bicycle up and down the street . We both lived on the same street and I would watch him ride his motorcycle and that’s probably why I’ve been riding since I’ve been old enough to get on a motorcycle. Al was a great friend and I have many great memories of hanging out with him. This truly saddens me and he will be missed. Rest in peace brother!!
