He also did volunteer work at Crouse Irving Memorial Hospital. Mr. Maxon, a life resident of Syracuse, was called Ben. He was a 1925 cum laude graduate of Syracuse University. His favorite pastime was singing, his son Stephen said. "We would go on a trip, and he would be singing the whole time. His favorite song was "Barney Google with the Googly, Googly Eyes." "For every occasion - wedding, bar mitzvah, a get-together around the block - he would take a popular tune and add words to it. Corny, but some people got a real kick out of it." His parents marriage was a close one, Stephen Maxon said. "He and my mother were just like kids right up until the time they went. They were really a pleasure to be with." Surviving are two sons, Barry of Syracuse and Dr. Stephen of Livermore, Calif.; three grandchildren; and a great-grandson.
