Rochester – On August 5, 2020 at age 64. Predeceased by his mother, Ann Bodine. Survived by his wife, Ava; their children, Erin (Lee) Levin and Jamie Lee Bodine (Kriselle Rodricks); grandchildren, Hazel and Ziggy Levin; brother-in-law, Scott Derman; sister-in-law, Robin (Paul) Basel; niece, Rachel Basel.
Lived for his wife of 43 years; loved her and the family they created with the greatest passion. A gifted singer and musician. A man of faith and integrity. A successful entrepreneur. Went above and beyond.
Never settled for anything but his best and put everything into his endeavors. Good natured and free spirited, gregarious, generous, and undoubtedly kinetic. He cared deeply for others.
