Jim Axel rites

A memorial service for Jim Axel will be held Sunday February 14 at 3pm.  The location is Living Grace Lutheran Church, 1812 Cooledge Rd., Tucker 30084.

Axel, who worked at WAGA for 34 years, died in November after a battle with cancer.

WAGA’s obit is here.  Axel was known for many things — chiefly, as a newsman with a lot of integrity.  He was also known for wearing a red tie on the air nearly every day he worked.  Attendees at the memorial are encouraged to dress accordingly, says longtime WAGA production guy Rodney Barber.
