Marvin Levine, M.D., 82 years of age, of Bloomfield, died Sunday, October 26, 2014 at Hartford Hospital with his loving wife of 60 years and his entire family at his bedside. Born in Brooklyn, NY, he was the son of the late Louis and Bertha (Wexler) Levine and the brother of the late, Elaine Fish.
Marvin received his undergraduate degree from New York University and medical degree from the Ghent Medical School in Ghent, Belgium. After graduating from medical school, Marvin and his growing family moved back to Brooklyn, New York to do his residency and then Hartford, CT to complete his residency as chief resident of pediatrics at Hartford Hospital.
Marvin then served honorably in the Navy in Pensicola, Florida where he was ultimately discharged as a Captain. Marvin and his wife, Terri so enjoyed their residency years in Hartford that they choose to move back to the area to raise a family and begin a private practice career as a pediatrician that spanned five decades and touched many lives. One of the many qualities that made Marvin special was that your family was his.
He leaves behind his loving wife, Theresa (Buchenholz) Levine; a son, Steven L. Levine and his wife Christine of South Windsor, their children, Carrie, Lindsey and Joseph, a son, Attorney Robert B. Levine and his wife Julie of West Hartford, their children Margaux and Nicole, a daughter, Lisa C. Levine of Somerville, MA, and a son, Attorney Mitchell J. Levine of Avon.
Funeral services will be held at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 in the Chapel of the Weinstein Mortuary, 640 Farmington Ave., Hartford with Rabbi James Rosen officiating. Interment will follow in the Beth El Temple Cemetery, Jackson St. Ext., Avon. Following the interment through Thursday evening, the family will receive relatives and friends at the home of his son, Robert B. Levine, 105 Mohawk Dr., West Hartford. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association, 2080 Silas Deane Hwy, Rocky Hill, CT 06067.
