PETER JAY LEVIN 4/28/1942~7/31/2017 Peter Levin of Chevy Chase, Maryland, died on July 31, 2017 after a brief illness. He is survived by his wife, Carol; his sons, Daniel and Jeremy, and his grandchildren, Linus and Ramona, along with many members of his extended family and cherished friends. He was predeceased by his brother Edward. Peter was born to Louis and Frances Levin (nee Passen) on April 28, 1942 in Buffalo, NY. Following the premature death of his mother, Peter moved with his father to Washington, DC at age 8. While working multiple jobs to help support his family, Peter nonetheless excelled in school and received a full scholarship to Brown University, becoming the first member of his family to attend college. He then attended the University of Chicago Law School and upon graduation received two teaching and professional fellowships that took him to Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1967, soon after marrying Carol. Peter returned to Washington, DC in 1969 where he raised his two sons and spent 30 years as a litigator at Pierson Semmes & Bemis and its predecessor law firms. There, he and his partners tried multiple major, complex energy cases. At the firm, Peter was known especially for his superb analytical skills and legal writing, and his love of the law. In 2000, Peter joined two of his friends and former law partners at the Tobacco Project of the National Association of Attorneys General, where he later became Chief Counsel. At NAAG, he worked with state attorneys general around the country to coordinate the nationwide enforcement of the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement between 46 states and the major tobacco companies. He retired in 2013. Peter was devoted to his community as well, serving on the Board of the Jewish Council for the Aging of Greater Washington, and as President of the Board of the Jewish Foundation for Group Homes, among many other charitable activities both during his career and in retirement. Peter loved the theater, tennis, travel, and Washington's sports teams, and sharing in all of these pursuits with his friends and family. He also maintained a love of learning throughout his life, regularly reading, visiting museums, attending lectures, and taking classes, often with Carol. He was adored by his family for his kindness, wisdom, and humor, and for never being too busy to listen. Peter's memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, August 4 at the Washington Hebrew Congregation in Northwest Washington, DC, with a graveside service to follow at King David Memorial Park. Contributions may be made to the Peter J. Levin memorial fund at the Jewish Foundation for Group Homes at jfgh.org or to another worthy organization.

Dear Northwood Classmates, while going through some old VHS tapes, I came across several hours of video from the 30th reunion in 1990. Please remember, these tapes are almost 30 years old and needed to be converted first to DVD, then to a format that the computer could read, before uploading them to YouTube, so please excuse the poor quality. The camera was usually sitting on a tripod therefore only those in front of the camera are on the tape. Not everyone at that reunion is visible and it is not the almost three hours of video recorded but there is about two hours now uploaded. Click here to view. Carol Cremonese also contributed to these videos with their camera.
