Remembering Larry Levine


Long-time Steamboater Larry Levine was one of the 10 people killed while teaching a writing class at Umpqua Community College in another senseless mass murder.



Larry was a gentle, literate man, a dedicated flyfisher, a passionate baseball fan, a long time guide on the North Umpqua River, a teacher, a skilled cook, a man with a strong sense of how he wanted to live. 



Larry first visited the North Umpqua River in the early 80’s at the invitation of Dave Hall whom he met when they were attending the University of Oregon.  Larry immediately fell in love with the River, moved up from southern Oregon, and never left.



A gifted writer and observer, Larry wrote several novels, none of which were published, but had several stories and essays published in periodicals including Fly Fisherman and Gray’s Sporting Journal; he also contributed pieces for the Steamboat Whistle over the years.



A gathering on the River is being planned for later this fall, and Steamboaters will be notified shortly about time and place.
