Mr. Levy coached my brother Chris, and I played basketball with Cindy, remember always seeing his wife and him at our games supporting us. In the last couple of years I would run into him at H-E-B and he would walk up to me and always ask about my brother . My deepest condolences to the Levy family. Very humble and caring man.

I’m so sad to hear of the passing of Mr. Levy. He was the boys P.E. teacher at Sugar Loaf elementary school when I was a kid, and I then had the pleasure of working with him when I was a substitute teacher and saw him many times here and there in Killeen. Just one of those people you feel like you’ve always known. Prayers and condolences for his family...Rest In Peace coach, you’ll be missed. 🙏🏻😢

God Bless you Coach Levy. You were an inspiration and role model to me and countless other kids in our neighborhood growing up. Your memories and advice you gave us remains firmly rooted in Christ to this day!

Since we moved in right next door, it was obvious that Stan would be the first person we would meet and get to know when we moved here in 1994. He was always quick with a “Hello, Brother Dave” and his patented smile whenever he would see me out and about. I will miss his smile and wit, and, while the Earth has lost a special person, Heaven has gained an even more special Angel. Shine bright, Stan, and I look forward to the day I here you welcome me up there with a “Hello, Brother Dave!”
