Donald L. LeVine, always known as "Red", auto mechanic, car enthusiast, patriotic American, and beloved Grandfather passed away July 20, 2021 surrounded by his family at Good Shepherd Hospice in Sebring, Florida, at the age of 82. Born in Wheeling, Illinois to the late Wilbur and Ruth LeVine.
The love of cars was both Red's passion and craft. He never stopped educating himself and others about the automobile industry. Red enjoyed his years at the drag strips and car shows, fishing with his grandson's, nature, a good cigar at the end of a long day, and a lot of laughter. Red was a long-time volunteer fire fighter, a member of the Loyal Order of Moose, NRA, and Highlands County Red Cane Club. In his later years Red became a deeply spiritual man and enjoyed writing to his daughters his prayers.
