Obituary for Eugene L. Waxman

Eugene L.  Waxman
Lt. Col. Eugene L. Waxman,US Air Force Retired, died peacefully in his sleep on Thursday July 20, 2017 at the Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA. He was 97. Lt. Col Waxman was the beloved husband of the late Betty J. (McGlothlin) Waxman, also a veteran of the US Air Force, who died in October 1997.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, he was a member of the Rovers Boy Scout troop in the 1930s. Lt.Col. Waxman served honorably in the US Air Force during WWII, Korea and Vietnam, retiring from the military in 1969. He was then employed by Raytheon as a contract administrator. He loved sports, especially baseball and basketball, and was a fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers and later the Boston Red Sox. He loved to attend Red Sox and Lowell Spinners games with his family, and spent his 94th birthday at Fenway Park where he did "the wave" with the crowd. He also enjoyed traveling with his family, and a highlight was a trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame. He liked to listen to big band music, including Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman and Louis Armstrong. An Acton resident since 1969, he volunteered at the Senior Center preparing Meals-on-Wheels until two years ago. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.

He is survived by two children, Roger and Karen Waxman, and Amy E. Waxman and Gary Whitaker; grandchildren Alexandra and Katherine Waxman, James and Kirsten Cunningham, and Katelyn an Jock Ober. He was predeceased by his parents, Meyer and Regina Waxman, as well as his siblings.

Family and friends are invited to visiting hours on Thursday July 27th, 2017 from 6:00-8:00pm at the Acton Funeral Home, 470 Massachusetts Ave (Rt 111) Acton. Interment in Mt. Hope Cemetery, West Acton is private. In lieu of flowers memorial gifts may be made in Lt. Col. Waxman's name to the New England Center and Home for Veterans, Attn. Development Office,17 Court Street, Boston MA 02108. Memorial page www.actonfuneralhome.com
