Marshall Levine, dedicated husband and father of three, passed away at the age of 88. He had a fall at home and suffered a hip fracture requiring surgery. He struggled during his recovery with several complications, and left us on Saturday, September 26 at Albany Medical Center.
Marshall was born July 12, 1932 to Louis and Sara (Alpert) Levine. He and his siblings Robert, Lenore (Zislin), and Daniel were raised in Troy, New York. They lost their father when Marshall was 10 years old, and continued to live in Troy with Sara and her sister Belle.
He enlisted in the Air Force during the Korean War and was stationed in Texas for most of his service. He proudly wore his Korean Veteran hat in his later years.
Marshall met his wife Sue (Patack) Levine in Albany, New York and they married in November 1961. They settled in Glens Falls where they lovingly raised their three children and many adored pets.
Marshall attended cosmetology school and owned several businesses over the years including hair salons and a diner. He was very caring toward his customers and colleagues. He also had a passion for Apple computers, family pets, and going on vacations with his family. Later in life, he enjoyed heading out to the local diner for breakfast with friends.
Having overcome prostate cancer, he volunteered running survivor support groups for several years at his local hospital.
Marshall also loved spending time with his grandchildren Justin, Rachel, and Eli and enjoyed taking them shopping when they would visit.
He is survived by his wife and three children; Lisa Levine and spouse Jay Cloutier of Albany, New York, Debbie Tegen and spouse Paul of Manchester Center, Vermont, and Larry Levine and spouse Jennifer of Jericho Vermont. He is also survived by his sister Lenore Zislin and several nieces and nephews.
Due to COVID-19, services will be private.
In remembrance of Marshall’s life, the family asks that any charitable donations be made to the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.
