It is with deep regret and sorrow that Frances announces the passing of Dennis Robert Levitt, her beloved husband, on Wednesday, October 12, 2005, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Dennis spent his working life as a custom Broker. He will be remembered more for his Square Dance calling and Recording Career, which he and Frances loved and pursued for thirty years. Dennis will be missed by the dancers whose lives he touched, both locally and internationally.
Besides his loving wife Frances, Dennis is survived by, Steven (Trish), Debra, and Mary Levitt, Yvonne and family in Hanford, CA, and Colin and family, in Colchester, England. He was predeceased by his mother Anne in 1955; and his father John in 1959.
