1961 - 2018 Obituary Condolences

East End resident John Preston "Trip" Levis, III passed away in the early hours of July 11 after many years battling illness. Born September 16, 1961 in Pittsburgh, PA, Trip attended Sewickley Academy, St. George's School, Yale University, and Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business. After completing his MBA at Tuck, Trip worked for McKinsey & Co. and eventually joined the Pittsburgh startup FreeMarkets, where he was Senior Vice President and Chief People Officer. For more than a decade, he served on the Board of Directors of the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, where he was actively involved in the renovation of Schenley Plaza. He was preceded in death by his father, John P. Levis, Jr.; stepfather, Parkman H. Clancy; sister, Emily Clancy; and dogs, Gypsy, Monti, Hugo, and Piper. He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth "Beth" Levis; sons, John S. Levis, Parkman "Archie" H. Levis (who are the sons of Sandra A. B. Levis), and Samuel "Sam" Q. Levis; mother, Susan Clancy; sisters, Helen Morrison, Margot Levis Thompson, and Erin S. Clancy; brother, Peter H. Clancy; many nieces and nephews; and his dog, Roger. Trip was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, and friend. Known for his wit, wisdom, and humor, he loved fly fishing and hunting in the company of his dogs. A lifelong bibliophile, oenophile, and audiophile, he will be missed by all. A memorial service and reception will be held at The Pittsburgh Golf Club, 5280 Northumberland Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15217 on Sunday, July 15 from 3:00 - 5:30 p.m. Due to the Vintage Grand Prix, parking will be limited and it may take extra time to get to the club. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy. Arrangements by JOHN A. FREYVOGEL SONS, INC.
