Alan H. Levine, Born August 22, 1925, passed away on Monday, October 9, 2017. Formerly of Buffalo, NY and recently of Lighthouse Pointe in Pittsburgh, age 92. He was born in Schenectady, NY, to the late David and Cele Levine. He was a respected lawyer in Buffalo, specializing in family law. Alan was a voracious reader and avid golfer and tennis player. He continued to play tennis and golf until his late-80s. Alan served in the 87th Infantry Division, and saw combat in various campaigns, including the Battle of the Bulge during World War II. He graduated from Cornell University in 1950 and the University of Buffalo School of Law in 1956. He will be remembered for his astute analysis of history and politics and his ability to tell a joke exactly pertinent to the topic of conversation. He is predeceased by his wife of 62 years, Doretta Schwartz Levine, with whom he shared lifelong friends in Buffalo, including the Discussion Group, which met monthly for over 50 years, and by his brother, Robert Levine. He is survived by his stepbrother Lewis Grossberger, and his sons Clifford (Rosanne), Daniel (Miette) and Roger (Jeff Gordon), along with grandchildren Meredith Levine Tsadok (Daniel), Benjamin (Dalila Boclin), Eric, and Rebecca Levine, Leah Riehl (Chris) and David Levine (Vi Nguyen) and great grandchildren Felicity and Clementine Riehl.
