Mr. Eugene H. (Hank) Levering, 86, of Fernandina Beach passed away Friday, June 1, 2018 at Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville.
Born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, he was the son of the late Barton Clifford and Mildred Elizabeth (Dusenberry) Levering and grew up in Upper Arlington, Ohio and Plymouth, Michigan.
Mr. Levering served his country in the U. S. Army. He was a proud graduate of the University of Michigan and remained active in the Alumni Association for most of his adult life. He worked for the Noxell Corporation and subsequently for Procter and Gamble, retiring as Senior Vice President of Sales during the time that the Cover Girl brand was developed and flourished.
Hank was an avid golfer and sports fan and played on both the basketball and golf teams during his stint in the Army.
Having vacationed at Amelia Island Plantation during its early years, he and his wife initially purchased property there in 1980, and later built their dream home there following his retirement. Hank and his wife loved to travel and were fortunate to have the opportunity to do so throughout the world over the last thirty years.
His surviving family includes his son, E. H. Levering III and daughter in law, Sally of Palmetto Bay Florida; a grandson, Clifford Jarvis Levering also of Palmetto Bay and a granddaughter, Lauren Marie Levering of Pasadena, California.
The family invites you to a reception to celebrate Hank’s life on Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 4:30pm to 6:30pm at the Sea Oats restaurant in Amelia Island Plantation’s Ocean Club.
