Memorial services for Chad Warren Levin, 45, of Belton, will be at 10 a.m. Friday at Harper-Talasek Funeral Home in Killeen.
Mr. Levin died suddenly Dec. 16, 2017, at his home in Belton. He was born Nov. 16, 1972, in Germany to Carl Irving Levin and Virginia Kathryn Hilles.
Mr. Levin graduated from Killeen High School in 1991. He became a fire fighter with the Killeen Fire Department after graduating the fire academy in 1995, where he faithfully served the community until 1998. Mr. Levin was a small-business owner for many years out of Salado, where his customers were his friends and he treated them all like such.
Mr. Levin loved the Longhorns— it didn’t matter the sport— he’d watch it. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, football, cold Coors Light, and sitting on the back porch.
Mr. Levin was an amazing and giving friend that was always there when he was needed, even if it was 1 a.m. or last minute. His proudest and most important contributions were his beloved children, all five of them. He took on the responsibility of a blended family with great passion and devotion when he was remarried to Shannon Kruse in January of 2017. There wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do or work to overcome for his family, something that brought him immense pride and joy. His passing will leave an immeasurable void in the lives of all of his family and friends.
Mr. Levin was preceded in death by his father, Carl Irving Levin.
Mr. Levin is survived by his mother and father, Virginia and Carl Biggs; two sisters, one brother, and their spouses: Kimberly Ann Zimmerman and Galen Richard Zimmerman, Kari Elizabeth Hibler and Slade Everett Hibler, Charles William Biggs and Ginger Raelene Biggs; three sons, Austin Chad Levin, Noah Griffin Kruse, and Ezekiel Geer Kruse; two daughters, Trinity Sarah Marie and Eden Channon Levin; and many nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Bell County Sheriff’s Foundation.
Viewing will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Harper-Talasek Funeral Home in Killeen, which is in charge of arrangements.
