I was a student at Wade Junior High School from 1963-1966. Mr. Levine was my math and social studies teacher for all three years. He was kind and caring and an amazing teacher. He had a wonderful impact on me and many others of us that were blessed to have him as a teacher. My deepest sympathy to all his family. He will always be remembered warmly
