Maurice Fluegel Levie, of Baltimore, Maryland, passed away peacefully in his sleep in the wee hours of Monday, November 14th, 2022. He was less than one month shy of 105 years old.

Maurice had a voracious appetite for words, text, languages, gadgets of all kinds, and desserts. He subscribed to many newspapers and magazines and thoughtfully clipped articles to send to family and friends he knew would be interested in the topics. He was a veteran who served in India during WWII, a trustworthy stockbroker for most of his career, and a masterful chess player, besting all comers as recently as this summer. He is survived by his beloved wife, Ruth Levie (nee Maleson), with whom he celebrated an 80th wedding anniversary in September. In addition, he is survived by his children, Carolyn Levie Handler, Eleanor Levie (Carl Harrington), Leonard (Bozena) Levie, and Benjamin (Karyn) Levie; he was predeceased by his loving son, James Fluegel Levie. Maurice was a family patriarch dear to niece Judy Tarses Sherr and nephew Mark Tarses, a grandfather to six, great-grandfather to thirteen, and great-great-grandfather to a recent newborn.

A private funeral will be held on Wednesday, November 16th, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. Interment will follow at Har Sinai Cemetery, Garrison Forest Road. No flowers, please, but contributions in his memory may be sent to Har Sinai Oheb Shalom Congregation, as Maurice was a member of Har Sinai for almost his whole life, active in the Brotherhood, an usher, a bar mitzvah at 75, and up to a few years ago a regular attendee of Shabbat services and Bible Study.

The Aitz Chaim community extends sincere condolences to Maurice’s family and friends, most especially his daughter Carolyn Levie Handler and granddaughter Wendy Weissman. May his memory be for a blessing.
