Dick Levin, a former instructor at Peer Learning, passed away on November 11, 2016.
Dick was a friend in Chapel Hill for fifty-three years and his deceased wife, Charlotte, was also a close friend of my late wife, Rishie Baroff. Dick was a major scholar, author, business consultant, and developer of the MBA (Master of Business Administration) program at UNC. In addition to his intellectual pursuits, he was a pianist and small-band leader, a pilot who flew his own plane around the world and, ironically, in light of his agnosticism, a major philanthropist to the Jewish community. His like will not be seen again
At Peer Learning, he began to teach his agnosticism, that belief in God was not necessary to a happy life.
Funeral services will be held on Tuesday at 1:00 PM in Judea Reform Synagogue in Durham.
It is my belief that his soul or spirit is now united with that of the loved ones that have predeceased him.
