Levin was diagnosed with a glioblastoma in November of 2006 after experiencing
a seizure at home. He passed away on February 17, 2007. He was only 61. In
three short months we lost a beautiful, kind soul much too soon. However, while
the cancer could take his physical body, his goodness and impact on all who he
loved will be with us forever.
Bob was born
in St. Louis, MO on June 3, 1943. He was raised by loving parents and had a
younger brother who he liked to get into mischief with. As an adult he
flourished in his career as an insurance agent. It was not his love for the
insurance industry that drove him, but rather his love for people. He was as
genuine as they come and made a connection with all of his clients. He truly
cared about their lives.
As well as
he did in his career, it was his family and friends who benefitted from knowing
him the most. He was very loving and affectionate and was always ready with a
hug and “I love you”. Those he loved most were always referred to as “Babe”, and
it warmed the hearts of all who heard it.
in life were simple pleasures. He loved to go fishing, especially with his son
Rick, and would sit on a good beach for hours on end watching the ocean. He
also loved to dote on his furry “children” and could be found kissing his
spoiled pooches often. He was a wonderful husband, father, step-father, grandfather,
uncle, cousin, and friend. Babe, we miss you!
