LEVY, Morris Structural Engineer - Shaping Boston's City Landscape Morris Sasson Levy of Lincoln, MA passed away on February 13, 2021. Born on December 10, 1929, Morris was raised in Khartoum, Sudan alongside his seven siblings. He earned his BS degree in Engineering at the University of Khartoum and later served as the deputy chief engineer for the city of Khartoum. In 1960, Morris immigrated to the United States to study at Columbia University and was awarded his MS in structural engineering with honors, after which he began his 43-year association with Parsons Brinckerhoff, a leading transportation engineering and management organization. During his tenure at Parsons Brinckerhoff, Morris held several management positions, served as a member of the board of directors and was ultimately elected chairman of the board of the renowned firm. His career highlights included his work on the Harvard Square Intermodal Station project, the Boston Harbor Outfall Tunnel, the North Station Improvement Project, and most notably, the Central Artery/Tunnel (CA/T) project. Morris served as Parsons Brinckerhoff's principal in charge of the CA/T and was ultimately recognized with a History Maker award from the Boston History Innovation Collaborative for his leadership role in the overall management of this project. Morris is survived by his wife of 40 years, Wendy Levy, his son Raymond Levy of West Long Branch, NJ and his wife Michele, his daughter Erika Wexler of Edina, MN and her husband Orren, his son Robert Levy of Westford, MA and his wife Jessica, his daughter Alexandra Levy of Boston, MA, his brother Joshua Levy of Israel and his wife Judith, and his sisters Frida, Yvonne, Marcelle and Shoshanna, all living in Israel. He is also survived by his six grandchildren: Michael Levy, Steven Levy, Joshua Wexler, Ethan Wexler, Maya Levy and Averie Levy.

Morris was an able leader of the Boston office of Parsons Brinckerhoff. I worked with him since I joined the firm in 1980. He was very bottom- lined oriented in business but also had a fun side after when he left the office. I remember going to his and Wendy's house in Lincoln one evening with a group of colleagues and showing slides. I showed before and after slides of Boston spanning some 25 years. We all had a good time. Wendy, I send my sincerest condolences.
