Survivors include his son, William Earl LeVert; his sisters, Addleen Powers and Katherleen Jarvis; his brothers, Alan LeVert, Henry LeVert, and Johnny LeVert; his grandchild, Teri Lyn LeVert Andrews; and his great-granddaughter, Avery Lynn Andrews.

William was born in Perry County April 3, 1926. He married Marjorie McDuff December 7, 1948. Their only son, William Earl, was born June 22, 1950; only granddaughter, Teri Lyn, was born June 18, 1981; and only great-granddaughter, Avery Lynn Andrews, born in November of 2010.

William had a successful 21-year career in the U.S. Navy, where he received five good conduct medals and was ranked MRCS (E-8). Next, he worked at Westinghouse as a Steam Engine Engineer for 20 years (1965-86). William was a strong Christian and a Deacon at Eutaw Baptist Church for many years. He was also a Gideon, a member of Citizens for Green County, and a member of many other civic organizations too numerous to mention. Not only was he a good citizen, but he put his religious beliefs into practice by helping his fellow man. People in the Eutaw community have told William's son many stories of his generosity. William will be remembered, always loved, and missed by many people whose lives he touched.

Pallbearers will be Bill Elliot, Don Edgar, Stanley Martin, Benny Abrams, Darren Beam, and Melvin Herndon.
