Robert "Bob" Grant Levens
June 27, 1929 - May 26, 2021
Tacoma, Washington - Bob passed peacefully at home on May 26, 2021. Bob was born on June 27, 1929 in Walla Walla to Guy and Margaret Levens, and he attended Saint Patrick's Catholic Schools. He married the love of his life, Joan Summers, in 1952. Bob and Joan moved to Ellensburg two years later, so Bob could attend college. After graduating, they spent 30 years in Tacoma where Bob taught. Bob and Joan spent the next 11 years in Ellensburg, until finally returning to Tacoma to be closer to family. Bob was a loving and devoted father to Grant (Vicki), David (Ronda), and Matthew (Toby), as well as a proud grandfather to Ryan (Erica), Patrick (Brittany), Anthony, Paige and great-grandson Cole. No service is planned at this time.

"Mr." Levens was my 4th grade teacher at Jefferson. He was wonderful. I've thought of him so often over the years.
