John Donald “Jack” Levin, 94, of Port Huron, was called home to be with his Lord on Saturday, November 12, 2022. God is good!

He was born December 4, 1927 in Alpena, Michigan to the late John F. and Lillian Levin. He was baptized on July 12, 1928 at the home of Oscar and Hilda Peterson by the Reverend J. VerStraate of First Presbyterian Church. He married the love of his life, Janice Flinchbaugh on October 28, 1950 in Port Huron. Their Christian union of 66 years was blessed with three children, Richard, Paul and Lori.

Jack graduated from Alpena High School in 1945 and served in the U.S. Navy until July of 1946. He was stationed in Kwajalein Atoll when the atomic bomb test took place on nearby Bikini Atoll. He attended Port Huron Junior College from 1946 to 1947 and transferred to Michigan Technological University where he graduated in 1950 with a Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering.

Following graduation, he was recalled to active duty and served two years in the U.S. Navy aboard the Destroyer Escort U.S.S. Hanna. He saw duty in China, Japan and Korea escorting aircraft carriers. He later received an M.B.A. from Wayne State University in 1972.
