Albert Arthur Levy Albert "Bert" Levy died at home last week after suffering a seizure. Bert was born in San Francisco on December 2, 1973. He grew up in San Rafael, and attended Brandeis Hillel Day School and Marin Academy. He graduated from Terra Linda High School, was a graduate of San Francisco State University, and attended law school at University of San Francisco. On February 23, 2001, Bert was struck by a speeding car while walking with his sister Ruth and close friend Elie Israel in Isla Vista, California. This event claimed the lives of Ruthie and Elie. Bert survived, and sustained injuries to his legs and brain. The brain injury caused him to have many seizures throughout the ensuing years. Post-injury, Bert sold mushrooms at a farmer's market, cared for his young brother Cameron, and most recently, enjoyed working at his father's law office where he was a valuable asset to Arthur's legal practice. Bert followed the worlds of politics and current events closely. He was also an avid Bay Area sports fan, and was especially enthusiastic about the Raiders and the A's. He owned an extensive collection of baseball caps. Bert will be deeply missed by his parents, Arthur Levy and Shary Levy, his step-mother Anais Levy, his mother's partner Marv Sternberg, his brother Cameron Levy, his grandmother June Levy, his aunts and uncles David and Louise Levy, Joe Levy, Bruce and Sherry Ziegman, and Rick and Bev Gold, along with cousins Amy (Bryan) Lankenau and son Aaron, Katie Craig and children Alyssa and Daniel, Marc and Nathan Levy, and Lauren Gold. He also leaves great-aunts Sue Levy and Annie (Sam) Shulman, and great-uncle Arthur Inerfield, and many other family members. His loyal friends Chris Kelly and Matt Whitman will miss him very much. Bert was predeceased by his sister Ruth, his grandparents Ruth and Albert Levy and Anne and Dr. Aaron Ziegman, and his devoted friend Elie Israel.
