Born to Frank and Laura in 1949, Levi was raised in his beloved community of Port au bras. There he worked hard, raised a family, and took great pride in caring for his property. It wasn't until he met the love of his life that he decided to pack up and make Salt Pond his home. 

 Over the years, Levi and Marion spent countless hours renovating their home, and beautifying their property until it was just perfect. It's no wonder that his place became the hub for most family gatherings. Father's day, Mother's day, and Christmas were especially important. All the family-including his children's mother, Pat- would come together and celebrate all the occasions. Now that's togetherness! 

 Levi had a very strong and devoted relationship with his children and absolutely adored his grandchildren. He worried about them as  much when they were grown as he did when they were little. Each of his children would receive countless phone calls from Levi every day, just checking in to see if they were OK and how their days were going. If his children had problems, he had a solution. If they needed something, Levi got it for them. He supported and guided them through good times and bad, and made the glass always seem half full, not half empty. 

 One of Levi's passions was music. He had quite the collection of records, and CDs and there was no artist or song that he didn't know. He played music for hours in his garage, singing along, as he had quite a voice. Back in the day, he would get onstage and sing with bands, and enter karaoke competitions as well. 

 Levi was a huge Montreal Canadians fan, and a hockey buff  as well. That would be his other passion. There was no trade he didn't know about, and no player Stat he couldn't riddle off. He was also quite the athlete himself. He would give his kids a run for their money back in the day, whether it be hand hockey on the kitchen floor, or soccer in the family yard. 

 Over the past several years, Levi developed a keen liking to the Salt Pond walking trail. He would frequent the trail twice a day for his walk. He met many friends from his walks, some of who became like brothers. He was so kind and friendly to everyone he met on the trail, always having a little hello or a quirky joke for other trail patrons. His wife, Marion, would walk with him sometimes, but mostly his walks were reserved for the men. 

 Before losing his battle, Levi finally got his wish and made Marion his wife while laying in a hospital bed. It was his dream to have Marion take his last name, and he was so proud he got to do that. 


A generous heart, a kind soul, a wonderful father, and devoted husband. Levi will be missed by all of those people who were lucky enough to have had him in their lives.
