James T. Traxler, 89, died on Feb. 11 in Evanston, Illinois.

“Jim nurtured a serious interest in chemistry and ended up helping teach his own chemistry courses during high school. He married the love of his life, Gabrielle Traxler, in 1956. Together, they raised their five children while he worked as a research chemist and Gabrielle worked as an art librarian. He had a fabulous streak of humor. He was always using his skills and inventiveness to build and fix things while his children were growing up. He loved camping with his family during the summer, instilling in his children his love for the beauty of the outdoors. In retirement, he took up writing, play reading, and classical guitar and continued his lifelong political activism.”—family of James Traxler
