Marc S. Levine
Marc S. Levine, 77, beloved husband of Tamara Kagan Levine, passed away Tuesday, October 16, 2018, at Hartford Hospital, after a long illness. The son of Bessie (Koplowitz) and David Levine, a school teacher and shopkeeper, Marc was born and raised in Meriden, Connecticut. He graduated from Maloney High School, Brown University and Georgetown Law Center. After practicing law for many years, Marc became a real estate developer, and at the age of 49, founded Marc S. Levine Real Estate Interests. He developed numerous projects over the last 27 years, including many dedicated to expanding the availability of affordable housing. He believed fervently in the revitalization of downtown Hartford, developing the first new housing project in Hartford in decades, ArtSpace Hartford. Marc dedicated many years to restoring the classic Sage Allen building, and was able to maintain the building's historical integrity through close collaboration with leading historical preservation experts.

Marc was easy to find in a crowded room with his curly grey hair, booming voice, and distinctly warm smile. He was friendly and generous towards people of all backgrounds and walks of life. Marc’s foremost priority, however, was his family, whom he adored and who adored him. Besides Tammy, he is survived by his wonderful children and step-children: Greg and Kuri Levine, of Bethesda, Maryland, Pamela and Bill Miles, of Hanover, New Hampshire, Abby Levine and David Cunningham, of Sharon, Massachusetts, Ross and Jane Weiner, of New Canaan, Connecticut, and Elizabeth and Andrew Miller, of New York City. He is also survived by nine grandchildren who absolutely idolized their “Papa”: Daniel and Seth Levine, Sophie, Carly and Zachary Miles, Josie and Gabriel Cunningham, and Spencer and Lilly Weiner. He cherished each of them and will be sorely missed by all of them. He also leaves behind his adoring mother-in-law and father-in-law, Elaine and Eugene Kagan, his sisters-in-law and niece, along with many loving cousins and treasured friends.

The family would like to thank Dr. John McArdle, who was not only Marc's outstanding physician, but a true friend to Marc and Tammy. They would also like to thank the nurses on Bliss 10 at Hartford Hospital who took such great care of Marc over the last few weeks.

The funeral will be held at Beth El Temple on Thursday, October 18th at 10:00 a.m., with interment following at Beth El Cemetery in Avon. Shiva will be at Marc and Tammy's home in West Hartford Thursday after the funeral, Thursday night, Friday afternoon until sundown, Saturday following sundown and Sunday afternoon and evening. Contributions in Marc's memory may be made to Beth El Temple, the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation, or any charity of the donor's choice.
