In Memoriam

Ben Levinson

Farewell Friend ...

At 103, Ben was an athlete.

Our dear friend Ben Levinson became ill in December 1999 and passed away on February 6, 2000. He would have been 105 on March 27th.
       At 104 years young, Ben broke all the rules when it came to preconceived notions about the elderly.
       Ben worked out at the gym, drove a car and dated younger women (in their 80s).

He certainly lived his life to the fullest. He will be sadly missed and long remembered by all those whose lives he touched. Ben's all-too-short association with the NCAP brought us many smiles.
