Memorial Service for Bernie Levy

Political activist, visionary, 70's clothing designer extraordinaire, 
entrepreneur, gourmet chef, creator, innovator, critical thinker

Sunday, October 28th @ Noon
World Beat Center - Garden


Dear Friends and Family:

It is with love and heartfelt sadness that we share that our father and grandfather Bernie Levy passed away today with his 2 children, Josh and Alyssa and other dear ones by his side. He lived a passionate and extraordinary life and will be dearly missed.
For all of you who knew Bernie, you know he was one of kind! Big hearted, caring and truly generous, he was at once an avid political activist, visionary, 70's clothing designer extraordinaire,  entrepreneur, gourmet chef, creator, innovator, critical thinker and without a doubt had a very strong will to live and lived as fully as possible throughout his life. 

A perfect symbolic moment happened when we visited him this past weekend. He was alert and yet only able to communicate minimally — however he let us know by the blink of his eyes that he did want to vote for Obama! One of the doctors that treated him through the years at UCLA commented unsolicited on how fascinating he was and how much he appreciated his intellect.

Lover of food, Cuba, "the Blues", arts in all dimensions, Martha's Vineyard, Southern California weather, the beach, travel and cultures, learning and politics — he was a deep and reflective thinker and definitely taught us the value of education, to inquire and question, respect differences, think out of the box, look at alternate viewpoints, deeply understand social issues and inequities worldwide, appreciate art and helped set a stage for us to follow our dreams.
We will hold a Memorial to honor Bernie and celebrate his life this Sunday in San Diego.

Date: Sunday, October 28th, 2012.
Time:  NOON - FOOD AND SOCIALIZING
1 PM - Memorial services
Location: The World Beat Center, Southern Garden (just outside and to the South of the Center), 2100 Park Boulevard, San Diego, CA 92101  Parking: Should be ample park along Park Blvd. or across the street in the Hospital Parking Lot.

With all our love,

Alyssa, Josh, Heidi, Jaime, Wynne, Eli and Kiara
