Somebody on the AOL messages boards said that gay porn actor Lonn Flexx died of AIDS in 1995. Any truth to this statement? I would have read something in the gay magazines about him dying of AIDS.
Here's what "Manshots" had to say about Lon Flexx:
Lon Flexx (real name: David Lee Anderson), who appeared in 49 gay porn videos, died of AIDS on September 15, 1995 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood.
He was born January 7, 1965 in Claremore, OK but grew up in Flagstaff, AZ and Albuquerque, NM. He returned to Claremore, where he graduated from high school. He attended the University of Oklahoma at Norman for 2 years and was president of the Gay Activities Alliance. He moved to california in 1988, fir living in Riverside and Costa Mesa before settling in West Hollywood in 1990. He was employed as a copywriter of marketing materials for a major studio's laser-disc products.
After being diagnosed with AIDS while visiting family in New mexico over the 1992 thanksgiving holiday, he was hospitalized there for several weeks. He returned to LA in March, 1993. As his health declined and he was hospitalized frequently, his extended family gathered around him to be with him. A memorial was held at his apartment on September 16, and his ahses were scattered at Slide Rock State park in Arizona on September 30, a place he himself had selected. He is survived by his lover, Rob McCaffree of West Los Angeles, his paretns, a sister in Albuquerque and a sister in Oklahoma.
