LEVY, Michael George (PPCLI, Major Ret'd, CD) Surrounded by his family, Major (Ret'd) Michael George Levy passed away in Vancouver on Monday, June 04, 2007. He leaves behind, his loving wife of fifty-five years, Marjorie; son Guy (Candice) and their children, Duncan and Meredith; son Don (Brenda) and their children, Erin, Jesse and Adam; daughter Linda (Dennis); and son Paul (Maureen). Mike is also survived by his sisters, Emma and Katie and brother, Albert. Mike's life was a fascinating journey from his birth in 1925 in Bombay, India through to his retirement years in Vancouver. Mike grew up in Shanghai, China where at age 16 he was placed in Lungwha, a Japanese Internment camp. Following his remarkable escape from that camp Mike embarked on a very distinguished military career. Upon joining the British army's elite SOE Force 136 in 1944, he parachuted into and fought behind enemy lines in Malaya. At the end of WWII Mike assisted his family in emigrating to Vancouver where he met his beloved wife Marjorie and joined his regiment, the PRINCESS PATRICIA'S CANADIAN LIGHT INFANTRY with whom he served during the Korean War with great distinction at the infamous battle of Kapyong, followed by numerous peacetime appointments in Germany, Vietnam, Cyprus the USA and across Canada. Museums and history books have deservedly recorded Mike's military legacy but the accomplishment he took greatest pride in was raising a wonderful and close family, for all of whom there was no greater inspiration.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made directly to the PPCLI Regimental Museum and Archives (4520 Crowchild Trail S.W., Calgary, AB T2T 5J4).
