LEVINE: Marvin Levine, 85, of New York City, passed away on Saturday, Jan. 13, 2024. He was born in Pittsburgh to the late Morris and Clara Gelman Levine. He had a beautiful older sister, the late Roberta “Birdie” Levine. Marvin grew up in the East End, and graduated from Peabody High School, where he played on the Peabody Highlanders basketball team. He then attended the University of Pittsburgh, where he played guard position on the men’s basketball team, the Pittsburgh Panthers. Marvin graduated from Pitt with a B.A. in history, and then served six months active duty in the U.S. Army Reserve. Professionally, he began his career as a case worker for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and then moved to New York City, where he worked as a probation officer for over 30 years. Marvin was a very active and intellectually engaged person. He enjoyed film and theater performances, played singles and doubles tennis at courts all over Manhattan and Brooklyn, traveled the world to over 30 countries, and gave tours of New York City for the 92nd Street Y. He also walked extensively throughout the various neighborhoods of New York, and attended minyanim at possibly over 100 different synagogues throughout his life.
