He was the fifth of six children. Although the state recorded his official birthdate as January 28th, his family always celebrated January 31st as his actual birthday. Levi served in the United States Army from 1951 through 1953. He loved sharing memories of time spent in Germany and France during his service. He also loved motorcycles, particularly Harley Davidsons. In his younger days, he spent many happy hours riding with his friends.

Throughout the late 1970s and 1980s, he volunteered countless hours with local 4-H clubs. He happily covered hundreds of miles transporting his daughter and fellow club members to and from club meetings, competitions, parades and fairs. He always looked back on those days as some of his fondest memories. Levi was a longtime member of the Masonic Lodge and past Master of our local Masonic Lodge, Fairfax Lodge # 43 A.F. and A.M..
