Julian W. LeVine

GUILDERLAND — Julian W. LeVine, an Army Airforce veteran and Syracuse University graduate, taught first- through sixth-grade gym class at Westmere Elementary School for 30 years until he retired in 1986 with a “Julian LeVine Day.”

“Julian is remembered and touched the lives of three generations of Westmere students as ‘Coach,’” his family wrote in a tribute.

He died on Friday, Oct. 9, 2020, at Hayes Manor in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was 96.

Mr. LeVine was active in community affairs as a past president of the Kiwanis Club and the Western Turnpike Rescue Squad. He was a devoted member of the Mcknownville United Methodist Church.

“Always very athletic, Julian loved camping, hiking, and sitting at McDonald’s, talking with friends,” his family wrote. “He is greatly missed by his family and friends for his wit and his caring way with all people.”

He was the husband of his beloved wife, Marilyn Ann, and the father of Deborah (Huff), Kenneth, John, and Robert, and grandfather to 11 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
