Obituary Jay E. Levy Pinehurst

Jay E. Levy, age 76 of Pinehurst, North Carolina—formerly of Baltimore, Maryland—passed away Friday, March 12, 2021.

A native of Youngstown, Ohio, he was the beloved son of the late Herman B. and Ruth (Garber) Levy. 

Jay is survived by his wife Deborah (Debbie) Clark Levy; children Joshua (Tara) Levy, Ben (Stacy Landsman) Levy, Katherine (Jeremy Epstein) Levy, and Emily (Ross Dubin) Levy, all of Baltimore, Maryland; and four granddaughters Corinne Levy, Keira Levy, Hannah Levy, and Clara Epstein.  

Jay was a 1966 graduate of Miami University of Ohio and a 1970 graduate of the University of Maryland School of Law. Jay enjoyed a long and successful career as a healthcare attorney, serving as an Assistant Attorney General for the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission and General Counsel to North Arundel Hospital, Union of Cecil Hospital, and Carroll Hospital Center. 

Jay was passionate about golf. Some of his favorite times were spent on the golf course with friends or his favorite companion, Debbie.  When not on the golf course, he was happiest with Debbie wandering around the Musée d’Orsay admiring Monet’s Waterlilies.  

Jay was a devoted father to his four children; he attended every sporting event, orchestra concert, and graduation.  He took immense pride in all their accomplishments but never missed an opportunity to showcase his superior trivia knowledge while watching Jeopardy.  

Over the course of his life, Jay was a loving caretaker for numerous spoiled Airedale and Wire Fox Terriers.

A graveside service was held 11:00 AM Sunday, March 14, 2021 at Pinelawn Memorial Park in Southern Pines with Rabbi Kenneth Brickman presiding.
