Dennis Michael Levy
Dennis Michael Levy, age 79, passed away August 21, 2021 in Prescott, Arizona. Dennis was born to Ethel and Samuel Levy on October 28, 1941 in Los Angeles, California.
Dennis served in the U.S. Air Force from 1963-1967. He met his wife, Merle, on a blind date, and they married in 1967. In 1976, Dennis transferred his job to Santa Barbara to escape the smog of Los Angeles. The family settled in Goleta, CA where they stayed for almost 30 years. Dennis worked for Xerox until he retired in 1994. In 2004, Dennis and Merle moved to Chino Valley, AZ for their retirement years.
Dennis’s various hobbies included target shooting, collecting firearms and knives, and amateur radio. Dennis will be remembered for his wit and dry sense of humor which included frequent joke-telling and wearing of funny t-shirts. He devoted the last years of his life taking care of Merle for which his children are deeply grateful.
Dennis is survived by his son Alan Levy (Lisa) with whom he shared his birthday, daughter Helen Goldman (David), and grandson Mason. He was preceded in death by his wife of 53 years, Merle, his parents, and older sister Arlyne. His eldest sister, Marlyne, passed away just two days after his passing.
