I send my sincere condolences to the family of Ernest Levingston. He was a wonderful man. I got my career start with an internship at Levingston Engineers, due to Ernest's confidence in me. I have such happy memories of your family.

My Condolences to the Levingston family. I went to work for Ernest in 1967 in the old single story building on Kirby street. I maid many great friends and memories with a very long career with Ernest that I will forever remember. Ernest kept me under his wings and taught me many values in my life. Under his leadership and encouragement I went far in my career.

Ernest was a great teacher as well as Engineer. Many people benefited from his persistent encouragement. Yes, I think he was a great man who contributed much to his community and nation.

I met Ernest in April of 1966 when I went to work for Levingston Engineers in Lake Charles. Over the years I came to regard him as one of the finest men I have known and especially to have work for. Everything about Ernest was first class. He was a fine Christian man. My deepest condolences to all the family and especially Mrs. Levingston.

Mr. Levingston donated a signed copy of his autobiography "As I Saw It" to the Johnson Bayou Library in April. Although, I would have enjoyed meeting him, I did have the opportunity to visit with him by phone. I had called to thank him personally for the donation to our Louisiana History collection. He recalled so many of his fond memories of his boyhood years in Johnson Bayou. Included in his book are entries from his diary of life in Johnson Bayou in 1936.
I so enjoyed our conversation and could tell he did too.

Mr.Ernest befriended us at Dr.Goolsby's Clinic and touched our hearts by sharing his experiences finding time to tell us about the greatest love of his life Mrs.Kathleen. He carried my husband and I on a journey through his life. When I told him he should write a book to share his love with others he replied "I already have would you like to read it?". Mr.Ernest saved every love letter he and Mrs.Kathleen wrote to each other in bound volumes. We will deeply miss our friend and wish to send our condolences to his family.
