Levis was an adventurous man who loved road trips and the idea of driving anywhere, any one of us could just mention going somewhere and he was set on go! He had lived in several states just to explore new territory and enjoy the great outdoors. All while enjoying historical markers and studying the history of the surrounding areas. He loved to fish, he was a lifelong hunter who loved to hunt with his sons. He was an avid gardener, growing a new vegetable or a pepper every year just to try something new he loved to share his fresh produce with friends and family, always delivering it so he could go somewhere. He loved to cook and make up his own seasonings and recipes and watch Food Network.
Levis made his living owning and operating a gas station/mechanic shop in his earlier years, to later driving a truck and then farming for the remainder of his career until he retired.
