Memorial for Bob Levy

Robert "Bob" Levy passed away Tuesday morning, August 26, 2008 at age 85 years young. A memorial was held Friday August 29, 2008 at the Woodland Park Gazebo. Bob was a well-known local and regional photographer, and was involved with several local organizations including the LFUCG Parks and Recreation "Ballet under the Stars," UK women's gymnastics and UK women's softball, as well as being a long-time member and devoted volunteer with the Lexington Art League.
“He was my studio and fiber program assistant for many years where he introduced the art of Japanese arashi shibori to my students. Two major large commissions, Millennium, at the Singletary Center, and Big Fall, at the Louisville Water Company Headquarters were made in a large part possible with Bob's help. He will be sorely missed for his art, wit, community spirit, and love of animals.” – Arturo Sandoval

Bob was a frequent visitor to our shop and always attended our art shows. He had a collection of witty t-shirts, our favorite being one with "Don't Drink and Draw" on the front. At the memorial on Friday, we were struck by the wide range of people who came together to honor their friend - many of whom we knew as well- It was great to see the common denominator of such a group was Bob!

In addition to his daughter Pat, Bob is survived by his beloved dog, Jen-Jen.
