In memory of
Alan Levine
Alan Levine Alan Levine passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Tuesday, May 19, 2020. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Lucille Levine, his three daughters, Deborah Levine, Caren Mintz, and Jennifer Levine, his three grandchildren, Julia Mintz, Alexander Mintz, and James McWhirter. He is also survived by his brother Paul Levine and his wife Mary, his sister, Susan Lukin, and his two sons-in-law, Jonathan Mintz and Todd McWhirter. Alan was born in 1937 to Joseph and Gussie Levine, of Flushing, New York, and was the oldest of the three children. Growing up, he was passionate about art, music and baseball, and was a loyal Mets fan. He spent many happy summers working as a counselor at Camp Ramaquois in Rockland County, NY. Alan met his wife Lucille at SUNY New Paltz College, where they were both studying education. After a short time serving in the U.S. Army, Alan and Lucille married in 1962. They settled in Rockland, began their teaching careers and started a family. Alan was an artist, mentor, and teacher all of his life. He graduated from SUNY New Paltz and Pratt Institute of Art, and taught art and painting for nearly 40 years at Spring Valley High School. He was an immensely popular teacher, and inspired many students to explore their creative side and pursue degrees in the visual arts. After he retired, he focused on his artwork, and was a proud member of the Piermont Fine Arts gallery in Piermont, NY. He also exhibited at other venues in Rockland County, and his paintings hang in many homes, businesses and institutions around the world. A charitable person, Alan was always willing to donate paintings to county organizations when they had an auction or fund drive to raise money. For years he participated in local running races, enjoying the fitness and camaraderie of the events. Alan was a devoted husband, father and grandfather, who spent his free time with his family and painting in his studio, with classical music, bluegrass or the sounds of the Beatles in the background. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Due to the public health crisis, there will be a small graveside funeral for family only. A Celebration of Life event will be held when we are able to safely gather. In lieu of food or flowers, donations can be made in Alan's name to the following organizations: People to People Food Pantry https://www.peopletopeopleinc.org/make-a-financial-contribution Rockland Center for the Arts https://rocklandartcenter.org/roca/support-us/support-us/donate.html Meals on Wheels, Rockland County https://www.mowrockland.org/donate.html
