Re-recording mixer Grant Maxwell died in Hackensack, N.J., in early January after an eight-month battle with leukemia. Maxwell began his audio career at Regent Sound Studios (New York City) more than 25 years ago. In 1984, he joined the newly established audio post-production facility Sync Sound, also in New York City. During the next 21 years, Maxwell contributed his mixing talents to numerous projects, garnering him three Emmy Awards and five Cinema Audio Society Award nominations.
His list of credits includes feature films, documentaries, TV series/specials and music concerts, including the Tom Fontana — created Oz, Homicide: Life on the Street, the CBS documentary 9/11, Peter Jennings Reporting, Barbara Walters specials and Stephen King’s The Stand.
Maxwell is survived by his wife, Dorothea, and sons Dan and Greg. The family is grateful for donations to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, in memory of Grant Maxwell.
