Levi Watkins


March 8, 2018

IRONWOOD, Mich. - My sweet Levi Watkins, born Feb. 3, 1991, passed away in the recent fire on Feb. 21, 2018.

Levi was employed at several local places, including Burger King, Iron Nugget and, most recently, at Brewster's Bar and Grill.

Levi loved food and people, family and friends, which included so many. He touched so many lives with his crazy self, always laughing and goofing around, always singing as he went. My heart will never recover.

To all of you, for your love and sympathy, I thank you.

Levi is survived by the loves of his life, Lexee Hembree, Evelyn Hembree and his brother, Daniel Watkins; his daughter, Ahlia Whitburn (Watkins), whom he loved with every breath he took; his grandmother, Shirley S. Holmes, and grandfather, C. Raymond Holmes, whom he adored and respected; his friend and surrogate father, David S. Elsner, and mother, Rhoda Holmes, whose life will never have the same meaning.

We loved and adored you Levi Dean, you lived your life just like the saying on your wall: "Follow your heart, it is the only compass you need. Choose happiness. This life is your message to the world. Let it be extraordinary!"

There will be a small memorial for the close childhood friends and family, and church family on Sunday, April 8, at 3 p.m. at Christ Community Church - Seventh Day Adventist in Bessemer.

We will be having a celebration of his life and benefit for fire victims in June. Details will be posted at a later date.

I love you Levi. Soar with the eagles.
