Eliot Levin

December 29, 1946May 13, 2020

Eliot Levin, of Sandwich, passed away at the age of 73, due to complications from COVID 19, leaving behind sons Eric Levin of Mashpee and Scott Levin with Erin (Martin) Levin of Falmouth. Grandchildren Ava, Moira and Samuel. Also, sister Irene (Levin) DeCola with Alan DeCola of Randolph.

Born in Brookline and proudly raised in Dorchester by his parents Anna and Saul Levin, Eliot fondly recalled the days of his youth, the relationships he made and the lessons he learned during that time.

Developing a strong sense of resilience, due to the unfortunate demise of his father at age 7, allowed him to take on an authoritative role around his childhood home. This resiliency may have been one of his strongest assets, carrying him, with focus, throughout the rest of his life.

Realizing his mechanical interest and ability at a young age, Eliot paved his own path by starting, owning and operating several successful automotive and welding businesses throughout Eastern Massachusetts. Most of his working adult life he had complete autonomy and did things “his way” while providing for his family.

He was able to travel extensively throughout the US, Europe and maybe, most proudly, a recent trip to Israel. Restoring antique cars and riding Harley Davidsons were true passions to which he devoted much of his spare time.

Growing up in a Jewish household was very important to Eliot and even though he was less observant as an adult he always felt a strong connection to Judaism. It may have also bolstered his claim of continuing and perfecting the “greatest chopped liver recipe around”.

He will be laid to rest by Cantor Bruce Malin at a small family service with a memorial for friends and family to follow in the near future.

Eliot and I were very close friends in our teen years we shared a lot of good times together. Eliot was a good friend that I could always count on for a hand when I needed one. My deepest sympathies to his family. He will be missed.

Eliot and I lived next door to each other in elementary school. We teased each other constantly. I remember getting him mad when I teased him by calling him Elly-oats. But we really enjoyed playing together.
Our Mom’s remained close friends throughout their lives. Now I remain friends with Irene.
Happy childhood memories in Dorchester

A number of years ago Irene, Alan, my ex-husband Stephen, and I went down to Falmouth for a weekend stay. Elliot came to visit us at dinner time. I had not seen Eliot for quite a few years, so it was a pleasure to see him again. I remember Eliot saying to me, "You look just like your mother!"
