Jeffrey D. Levenhagen

August 24, 1949 — May 23, 2021

Jeffrey D. Levenhagen, 71, Speedway, IN, passed away May 23, 2021, after a long health battle. Jeff was born August 24, 1949, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to the late Donald and June (Urban) Levenhagen. He is survived by his wife, Beverly (Hodge), whom he married on July 30th, 1983.

Jeff proudly served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War and later in the United States Air Force Reserves. He graduated from Maplewood Community College with a liberal arts degree, with an emphasis in social work. Jeff was truly a man for others – he worked as a case manager at the Milwaukee Rescue Mission for many years, where he assisted countless homeless men to regain stability. A faith-filled man, Jeff was heavily involved with ministry in multiple churches and served at Life Tabernacle Church for 8 years until his passing. He had a passion for caring for people through teaching, preaching, and other various giftings. Like his mother, he was also very musically inclined and played drums from the time he was 4 years old. Jeff found joy in many hobbies throughout his lifetime. He avidly collected, repaired, and restored antiques, and was a lifelong historian with a fascination for the Civil War. Above all, Jeff was strongly devoted to his family. He will be fondly remembered by his family and many friends for his goofy sense of humor, and for his quiet, kind and gentle manner.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Bonnie Leon Levenhagen.

He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Beverly; as well as children, Paul Levenhagen, Lora (Eric) Hopp, Josh (Liz) Levenhagen, and Tim Levenhagen; two grandchildren, Andrew and Rayna Hopp.
