Samuel D. “Sammy” Levine

LEVINE: Samuel D. “Sammy” Levine. On Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2020, he passed away just two months after his 99th birthday. Sam was the son of the late Benjamin and Ronella (Lipsitz) Levine, brother of the late Jane Stern and husband of the late, much loved Gretchen O’Hagan Levine. Sam loved to hold court and tell stories about friends and relatives. His extended family said he knew everyone in Pittsburgh. During his career, he worked for the Sun Telegraph, then for the state of Pennsylvania. He was a longtime volunteer for Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation. He is survived by devoted cousins Bette (Mel) Spokane, Debbie Cooper (Jim Ostronic) and many extended family members. He was blessed to have wonderful neighbors and friends who were always there to assist and provide companionship. His family is especially grateful to his aide, Kelly, who selflessly was always by his side. We also thank the JAA for their attention and concern (volunteer Linda) and the devoted staff at his apartment and former aide, Megan. A special thank you to the ICU staff at the hospital for their attentive and compassionate care. Due to COVID-19, services and interment private. The family suggests donations be made to Jewish Association on Aging, 200 JHF Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15217 (jaapgh.org) or Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation, 100 West Station Square Drive, Suite 450, Pittsburgh, PA 15219, (information@phlf.org).
