August 25, 1937 — January 25, 2024


Louis Edward Leviton, Sr, 86, of Fargo passed away, January 25, 2024, at his residence after an extended illness. Louis was a loving husband, father, grandfather, businessman, friend, and devoted Christian. Louis was born August 25, 1937, to James (“Jimmy”) Benjamin Leviton and Mildred Lucille Hill Leviton. He lived his entire life in his hometown of Fargo, Georgia. He graduated from Clinch County High School in 1955, after which he attended Middle Georgia College in Cochran, Georgia, where he graduated on June 2, 1957. Louis then enrolled at the University of Georgia where he earned a Bachelor of Business degree on June 6. 1959. He returned to Fargo, Georgia, to join his father in managing the family business, Leviton’s Grocery & General Merchandise. He was an active member of Park Avenue Church in Valdosta, Georgia, where he especially enjoyed his friends in the Grace Dennis Sunday School class. 

Along with his parents he was preceded in death by a brother, Bennie Eugene Leviton.

Louis married Rosemary Brabham Leviton, his wife of 56 years in 1967. Together they built a life of commitment to each other and to the family they would build together. God blessed them with two children Shannon Louise and Louis Edward (“Ed”) Leviton, Jr. His children were the joy of his life. He looked forward to teaching them to drive the old straight stick ford pickup truck through the pasture. He taught them to hunt, fish, and enjoy the life and land they were blessed with.
