LEVI is in Heaven
One of our Homeschool Friends Died.
PUBLISHED: Friday, August 24, 2007
Levi Wojtowicz, age 14, died suddenly but peacefully on August 22 after a short illness. Levi was born February 26, 1993 in Jacksonville, FL.
Although Levi's life was short, it was very full. He had many hobbies, including watching PGA Men's Golf on TV (Tiger was his favorite), listening to books being read, listening to country music on the radio and I-Pod, and collecting rocks.
He was active in the Royal Rangers scouting organization, Mountain Eagles 4-H Club, Challenger Baseball, homeschool group field trips, and many different church activities. His gigantic smile and great love were gifts to many people, and he will be dearly missed.
Levi is survived by his mother, Sarah Avery Wojtowicz of Riverdale, MI; his father, James (Jean) M. Wojtowicz, Sr. of Las Vegas; his maternal grandparents, Joe and Sue Avery of Riverdale, MI; his paternal grandmother, Sally (Norman) Seibel of Kalamazoo; his great-grandparents, Lee and Tina Hallock of Stanton, MI; his half-brother, James Wojtowicz, Jr. of Zapata, TX; his aunts and uncles, Linda (Andy) Eaton of Kodiak, AK, Teresa Wojtowicz of Lansing, Patrick (Melissa) Wojtowicz of Riverdale, MI, and John Paul (Stephanie) Wojtowicz of Riverdale, MI; his cousins, Tayla, Holly, Gabrielle, Jason, Kayti, Jade, and Arianna; and his special caregivers, Jean Atkin, Kathy Gatten, Kathy Sanders, Mary Sanders, and Ann Fox.
Levi was preceded in death by his grandfather, James L. Wojtowicz and his great-grandmother, Geri Wojtowicz. Funeral services will be held Sunday at 2:00 PM at Our Savior's Lutheran Church, Edmore, with Rev. Bill Twynham officiating. Interment will be in Richland Cemetery.
Visitation will be Saturday from 2-4 and 6-8 at Stebbins-McCullough Chapel, Edmore. Memorial contributions in Levi's honor may be given to Central Michigan Christian Church for the Royal Rangers scouting organization. Envelopes will be available at the funeral home.
