LEVITT, Martin A.


Of Easton, raised in Milton, and formerly of Sharon and Freedom, NH, passed away on February 25, 2019, at the age of 71. Son of the late Dorothy (Ezer) and Saul Levitt, of Milton. Beloved father of Joshua and Halle, of New York City, Benjamin and Lesley, of Boston, Anna of Brooklyn, and Michael and Jacob, of New Hampshire. Joyful grandfather of Jack and Ari. Devoted brother of Lois Wallenstein and husband Arnold, of Sharon, and nephew of Elaine and Melvin Levitts, of Randolph. Former spouse of Lilly Pelzman, of Newton.  A Vietnam Veteran, of the 513th Maintenance Battalion, US Army Reserve, graduate of the University of Massachusetts and the University of Missouri, he was Director of Public Health for the City of Medford and for Environmental Health and Safety at Boston College and Tufts University, and later worked as an instructor for aerospace and medical software. Marty was fun-loving and an optimist. With his children, he shared his passion for restoring antique cars - MGAs and Cadillacs - building with wood and sheet metal, and photography. His friends valued his helpfulness and sense of humor, and his deep, bellowing laugh will be missed. He died from a heart attack and was accompanied in his final moments by loving companion Peggy Lamb. The funeral service will be on Sunday at 10AM, at Schlossberg Solomon Memorial Chapel, 824 Washington St., Canton, followed by burial at Sharon Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Temple Sinai of Sharon, 25 Canton St., Sharon, MA 02067.
