Norbert J. Levine

AUBURN — Norbert Joseph “Bert” Levine passed away on Nov. 29, 2011 after a long battle with cancer. He was 69 years old.

Bert was born Oct. 3, 1942 in Caribou, Maine, the son of Thomas and Loretta Levine of Buxton. He attended Buxton schools. As a young man he worked in the woods alongside his father. He spent many years to follow working in the vacuum cleaner business with his brother-in-law, Bill.

In his later years you could find Bert mingling with the help or telling tall tails at the round table at Mary’s Place on Main Street in Bridgton. Bert was never at a loss of words and always had someone laughing.

Bert is survived by his longtime companion, Marilyn Craigin; a son Randy and wife Rebecca King of Goffstown, N.H.; stepchildren, Fred and wife Karen King of Harrison, Maine, Joy and husband Ronnie Singer of Martinsville, Ind., Barbara and husband Larry Blanchet of Piedmont, S.C.; one grandson, Brandon and wife Kara King of Goffstown, N.H., five step-grandchildren, Christopher and Colin Blanchet of Piedmont, S.C., Tammy, Tonya and Melissa King of Harrison, Maine; one greatgrandson, Dyson Joseph King of Goffstown, N.H.; and two nephews, Scott and Jeff Meikle and families, both of Saco, Maine. He was predeceased by both parents and a sister, Ella May Graffam.

Respectfully, at his request, there will be no service. Per request of the family, if anyone wishes, a donation may be made to the Hospice House in Bert’s name, at 236 Stetson Road, Auburn, ME 04210.

The family would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the wonderful staff at the Hospice House for all their love and care that was shown to Bert through his final days.
