I joined Boise Sunrise Rotary in 2016 after winning an ethics in business award sponsored by the Down Town Rotary group. I guess they figured that I was a good fit. I was immediately snatched up by Boise Sunrise Rotarians that were in the crowd watching the award ceremony.
I come from a construction family and ended up in Boise Idaho to take over a failed business called Flying Pie Pizza in September of 1980 and sold my portion in 2005 and started my construction business.
I was a Paramedic at the time and quickly discovered that I needed supplemental income to survive.
While running Flying Pie I became an Ada County Paramedic for 10 years and then in 1986 was hired by Life Flight as one of the original Flight Paramedics. I later was hired by Air Saint Luke’s and worked my last shift as a Paramedic in September of 2014 My EMS carrier spanned 38 Years.
I am a General Contractor now doing residential remodeling and the occasional new home. My company name is Levco Builders which I took over from my dad. I am getting back to my roots and just celebrated my 15th year in business. I find this work challenging, engaging, and vital that requires a level of problem-solving skills that stagger the mind.
My parents are both still living and I am married to Rachel Levitch who is a PA and we have 2 children Athena who lives in the Bay Area and Ethan who lives in Montana. No grandkids yet but I treated them like grandchildren all their lives so I’m ok with that.
Rotary is filling a void left by my EMS retirement. It allows me to give back to the community in a way that fulfills me. I am on the board of directors in charge of community service. I take it seriously and love participating in meaningful good deeds. My fellow Rotarians share my passion. I feel like I fit my Rotary club like a well warn pair of slippers.
As much as I am a cheer leader for local service, I also have been to Colima Mexico supporting Project Amigo several times with Rotary. I sponsor a child there and feel a deep connection with that culture and community. Living the 4-way test is natural for me. I get as much as I give through my Rotary club and I highly recommend participating to my high character friends.
